As part of my history class’ research on the Millenium Development Goals and our partnership with the Kysoro School in Uganda, we screened a recently-released documentary at our school–in an effort to raise awareness to the issues of gender equality and education. The movie, Girl Rising is a great, educational, tear jerker. The movie takes you on an emotional journey with some extraordinary girls who want to go to school and just get an education. After watching the movie, I realized just how hard people try to obtain justice. It also brought to light the true problems that many girls face everyday. This movie has given me a broader sense of community and how my service can go beyond local communities and the power and value of education and girls worldwide. If I was a movie critic I would give the movie a 4.75 out of 5.
