From Inspiration to Action Sherry Zhou, Jacquelyn Nicole Alanko, George Washington University

A group of young women leaders at the George Washington University (Washington, DC) were inspired by Malala Yousafzai's story of hope and courage for standing up for girls' education. With the help of the Women's Leadership Program, they held a fundraiser in her honor, with the money going to Room to Read, a nonprofit that works in 10 countries in South/Southeast Asia and Africa to promote literacy and gender equality in education. The team raised $750- enough to send a girl to school for three years!
