MEET THE GLOBALGIRLS
MEET SOME OF OUR 2018 GRADUATES
‘What I got out of GGM UK was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I never thought that I would ever get to see the news in real life. I never thought that I would ever be able to understand how the news world works. But guess what - GGM gave me that opportunity.'
‘The most important thing that I got out of GlobalGirl Media UK was that I am beautiful no matter what anyone tells me.’
‘I learned that my view is also important. It’s not only what other people say is important that matters, it’s also what I say…’
‘GlobalGirl Media UK has boosted my self-confidence and made me a better person'
MEET AISHA CLARKE
GGM UK 2016 GRADUATE & YOUTH AMBASSADOR
'GGM UK really kick-started my career and passion for the media industry. It made me realise that I want to work in factual TV/documentaries. It was great to be surrounded by other girls in a safe space and learn about filmmaking, especially the camera/technical side of things. [The team] were amazing at helping everyone and giving us support after the initial training.'
MEET POPPY SHARPLES
GGM UK 2016 GRADUATE
‘After doing the GGM UK training, I realised how important media can be to empower women. I left with more confidence in media skills, in working as a team and knowing how successful women can be in the media. Because GGM was all women, it was such a safe, non-judgmental space to speak about ideas, whereas when you’re in university, there are a lot of strong male opinions which can be quite intimidating.’
MEET RURI MAEDA
GGM UK 2017 GRADUATE
Inspired by GGM UK’s weekend training in documentary storytelling, Ruri - who had never edited a video before - went straight home and made this fabulous short film. It’s a wonderful expression of appreciation, captures the spirit and scope of the training and is a really well structured story. Congratulations and thank you, Ruri!
