"I grew up in India and saw many girls denied an education - some were forced to marry and have children while they were still children themselves. I believe every girl should have the right to go to school and fulfill her potential. That's why, on the very first International Day of the Girl, I am backing Plan's call to make girls' education a priority. With education and the right support, girls are powerful and can help move themselves and their communities from poverty to opportunity." -Freida Pinto
