Why I Love the YesSheCanCampaign!By: Arielle Gedeon

When I think about movements and campaigns that have such a positive impact on a multitude of young women’s lives I think about the YesSheCanCampaign. The YesSheCanCampaign was founded by Zaniya Lewis who has dedicated her time in the community since she was young. The development of this campaign stems from her passion to empower young women against all odds. Taking a look at the campaign’s motto gave me another reason why I love YesSheCanCampaign. The motto is, ” A place where YOU can inspire, encourage, and share YOUR story. And I believe that is such an amazing concept. The Five Pillars of this organization are Education, Service, Opportunity, Advocacy, and Empowerment. All powerful concepts that can really solidify the development of this campaign. I came across YesSheCanCampaign when I was scrolling through Instagram and saw my fellow PCI sister, Lycinda post about it.  After doing a little research on my own, I was so intrigued that someone not too older than me has started such an amazing thing. Also, if my fellow PCI sister was involved then I know it is a good thing to be part of. From there on, I was glad that a chapter was brought to my University where Jayla George served as our President. I also applied to become an ambassador for the program where I am enjoying the weekly assignments of learning more about the campaign. Being a part of the YesSheCanCampaign is a privilege that I am grateful to have, when I mention my involvement with the campaign I say so with pride and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. Hopefully we can see the growth of YesSheCanCampaign all across the globe!
