At She Knew She Could, it’s important for us to amplify the voices of young women. Here are 6 amazing young women, with wise words we can all learn from. We hope they mean as much to you as they do to us.

“So believe in your voice, believe in yourself, and always follow your dreams. Because especially young girls, they dream big but as they grow older they start underestimating themselves, they do not believe in themselves, they don’t dream big. So I would ask all young girls to dream big, as big as you can, and just follow your dreams and you can do anything.” – Malala Yousafzai

“I think the most powerful thing a woman can have is confidence.” -Rowan Blanchard

“I want young girls to know that their passions are important and that they should pursue them, regardless of whether or not they think that they’ll be successful in terms of the mainstream.” -Marley Dias

“I’d rather regret the risks that didn’t work out than the chances I didn’t take at all.” – Simone Biles

“A lot of people will say different stuff like, ‘You can’t do it.’ They’ll say no before I even say anything. You just have to believe in yourself, and there’s a reason they might say no, because they probably haven’t seen it before.” -Marsai Martin

“No matter what your differences are, you have to embrace them and be proud of the way you are.” – Jazz Jennings
