Carolyn Seaman is the Founder and Creative Director of Girls Voices Initiative, promoting digital literacy and citizen journalism skills among girls and women, using digital media to amplify girls voices and advocacy through their stories.
She is a 2016 World Pulse Voices of Our Future Award-winning Correspondent and World Pulse Mentor with the ‘Intel She Will Connect’ Project in Nigeria.
She has trained women and girls on digital empowerment and is currently teaching girls the power of storytelling and using their stories to mobilize community action towards girls’ empowerment through her digital action Campaign, ‘Make Girls Voices Count’.
She is motivated to contribute to the advancement of the protection of human rights in the society with bias in the protection of girls and women’s rights and access to equal participation in economic development.
She uses her platform to educate girls about their rights and expose them to opportunities where they use their voices to engage public conversations and champion advocacy; so they can mature into confident women and lead wherever they are established
Girls Voices are certain that the future of Nigeria is too important to be left to men and boys alone. At Girls Voices, they are raising girl leaders who will demand their seats at the table and if they are not given a seat, they will create their own table.
They have reached over 875,100 adolescent girls through their girl-centred programs and together with their phenomenal girl leaders, they have reached over 80 million people through their programs.
