Then thirteen-year-old Annie Gersh worked with her classmates to form the first-ever Girl Up club at her school in Los Angeles. In the spring of 2013, she traveled to Guatemala with Girl Up, where she met many girls, including survivors of violence and students fighting for an education. "This trip has reinforced for me the power and importance for all girls to receive an education," she says. Since visiting Guatemala, Annie donated her 14th birthday to Girl Up, raising more than $5,000 for the program.
