Inspired by the Girl Rising documentary, singer-song writer and 2010’s Kollaboration alumna, Clara C wrote “Wildflower” and debuted the music video last March.
Girl Rising, a global campaign founded by New York independent film company Ten Times Ten, advocates girl’s rights to an education around the world through screenings of their 2013 documentary, donations through their website, and offering fundraising ideas. In the light of the recent kidnapping in Nigeria, Girl Rising also helps people who want to get involved in rallies, spread the word #BringBackOurGirls, and they provide a timeline of events for people to follow and understand the whole story of the situation. The campaign calls everyone who believes in the universal right of education to rise to take a stand.
Girl Rising’s cause inspired Clara to compose “Wildflower.” The music video features Clara walking in the woods interposed with different photos of people around the world advocating Girl Rising. The chill, low-key song encourages staying strong against challenges, and flourishing despite the odds. Her music video already has over 35,000 views since its on March 5.
At the end of the video, Clara sends out a personal call to action, backing the Girl Rising movie and promoting the hashtag #IAmCourage to trend ideas and awareness of girls education in the world. Girl Rising’s other partners like CARE, UN Women, the Girl Effect, Intel, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and World Vision tweeted out their support of #IAmCourage, along with countless other users.
Girl Rising continues its fight for girl’s education, especially given the crisis in Nigeria. Accepting donations, hosting rallies, and helping #bringBackOurGirls become more prolific, Girl Rising won’t cease until all girls receive the education they deserve.
