I Wrote A Novel Thanks To Girl Up

Thanks to Girl Up, amongst other female empowerment organisations, I've gained the confidence and determination to do what I've always wanted to do, despite my age, gender and lack of resources.
I'm seventeen-years-old and I've written and self-published my own novel. It's based on the true-life led by my inspirational grand-aunt Rose in the 1950's. Rose was an incredible woman who was decades ahead of her time. When a tremendous tragedy occurred in her life, she stayed so strong, working three jobs at once so that she and her young daughter could even survive.
The novel is named "Rose" and is available to purchase on Amazon. I spent six months writing the book on my phone because I don't own a laptop and decided to self-publish it when I couldn't secure a publisher.
I'm not posting this to promote myself or my book in any way, but to thank Girl Up for making this possible for me, without even knowing! Since they’ve helped me to believe in myself, I want to help other girls follow their dreams too. I also hope I can inspire them, because being a young female should always be celebrated and so should everything we accomplish!
