Since she was a young girl, women’s and girls’ rights have been one of Amanda Ring’s main passions. Amanda is an enthusiastic, generous and open-minded 18-year old from Sweden, who recently graduated High School where she studied Social Science with a focus on international relations. To help raise awareness of disparities for women and girls, Amanda participated in the United Nations General Assembly in New York City to enhance the conversation and inspire others to action.
Amanda is committed to working with her local UN-association and PLAN International chapter as she leads a project group with a special focus on women and girls. During her last year of high school, she led a project to help facilitate a cultural exchange between girls in Sweden and Tanzania within the area of gender equality. Amanda values the voices of women and girls and spreading their ideas and opinions around the world. Over the past year, she has blogged for Girls’ Globe which has been an invaluable experience for her to develop herself and gain more knowledge about global issues. Now, she hopes that inspiration to make a difference will spread across the globe and beyond the meeting rooms in New York City.
