What every girl of my age wants is freedom and good platform to showcase their talent and interests. But our society being conservative and patriarchal, girls are not provided with good platform. They are underestimated and bounded within the four walls. Being girl by myself, I suggest on the awareness programs about girl education and their empowerment. Appropriate platform and security should be provided to the girls so that they can feel secure and empowered.
