Emma Whitman '22 traveled to the United Nations in celebration of the International Day of the Girl, as a member of the Girls Leadership Council–a community group that furthers the legacy of Alice Paul and her life's work for gender equality and brings recognition to organizations and historic sites that honor women. Who is Emma's girl hero? She says, "My girl hero is Greta Thunberg because she overcomes her struggles and does not let her age or her gender prevent her from fighting for what she believes in. She is an inspiration to many and does not let others bring her down. I dream of having an impact on the world just as she already has."
