iMedia: YouTube/The Girl Effect

The Girl Effect: Video

The power of YouTube, is so much more important than it has ever been. Through media, we can make a difference, spread awareness, show people that there is something we can do to improve the value of life. The power of video, can reach the heart. It can help people visualize what a problem is and do something about it.

I believe that by using media that people around the world utilize every day, we have the power to change the world. This video speaks for itself and me talking about it gives it no justice, you just really have to watch it. I dare you to not want to make a difference and give a girl a better life by the end of it.

The power of media is immense. It is extensive in all ways. I am not going to shut down the human race by saying that we do not utilize media enough because truthfully we do. But I will say that I feel like all the junk we put out in the media needs to go away. There are more important things such as 'The Girl Effect' and other organizations that deserve more recognition than the dirty gossip and backstabbing that the media is being used for now.

The Girl Effect proves that a powerful message or video can make a difference.

  1. El, I LOVE this post. I remember watching this video when it was on your Facebook and I love the way you talk about how good media needs to me seen more and we need to get rid of the bad stuff, and its even greater because you actually follow that in your own life. I always see inspirational, cool videos on your Facebook from different organizations doing things to save the world. If we all did the things you do and realize how good media can be I really think we could change the world by getting organizations out in the open to save our country, and other countries and make the world a much better place.
