In honor of Thanksgiving, we bring to you Commissioned Poet and Writer Azure Antoinette. Azure, a 10x10 Global Ambassador, gave a passionate and inspiring performance at our campaign launch last month, held at the Paley Center on the first International Day of the Girl.

We are releasing it here, for the world to see:

She reminds us to dream big and be thankful for what we have – including the ability to inspire change. She beautifully articulates the importance of educating girls, which can help secure a better world for us all.

Azure is a notable force in the arts and women/girl empowerment world. She founded an arts-in-education program that provides custom poetry workshops for teen girls, teaching them how they can impact the world around them. Named among Forbes Magazine’s 100 Most Powerful Women in the World, she is someone worth hearing – and sharing!

Watch, get inspired, and share this video with friends so they can become part of the growing 10x10 movement to educate girls and change the world.
