ICYMI, actress and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson delivered another powerful speech on gender equality during the World Economic Forum 2015 in Switzerland. Once more, she is urging us to make our move especially after hearing her speech about #HeForShe last year. During her speech, Emma posed questions and wants us to tell our stories on the commitments we've made after HeForShe, introducing us to the next phase of the program: the HeForShe Impact 10x10x10 Program.

It is important to note that the thing we should remember every time is the important question the actress posed during her speech, "What now?" What happens after you heard and read about the HeForShe campaign?

"One of the biggest pieces of feedback I've had since my speech is that men and women want to help but are not sure how best to do it," she said. "Men say they've signed the petition. What now? The truth is the 'what now' is down to you. What your HeForShe commitment will be is personal and there is no best way. Everything is valid. Decide what your commitment is. Make it public."


This is where Impact 10x10x10 comes in because the program encourages you to tell your story so they can share it, support it, and nurture it in order for your story to reach and inspire more people to do the same. Remember that it is never too late or too early to participate in changing our world, Candy Girls. Every thing you do and say will make an impact—big or small, they're still valuable because this is your issue, too. This is our issue, too.
