#ThisLittleGirlIsMe: successful women share their stories

On the occasion of the International Day of the Girl, celebrated each year on 11 October, the Singapore arm of charity Inspiring Girls International launched the #ThisLittleGirlIsMe social media campaign, encouraging women to post photos of their younger selves with their personal tales to show girls that they, too, can achieve their dreams.

During this month-long global campaign, many women – among others, politicians, business women, entrepreneurs and NGO executives – shared their photos and personal experiences aiming to empower young girls around the world. Moonshot has gathered some of the most inspiring posts they shared.
