"I want to tell you I'm passionate about the 62 million girls," she said, who lack access to sufficient education, as a result of poverty or distance from school campuses. Furthermore, she encouraged the group of young activists to "start with whatever issue move [them]," and also to remain hopeful despite adversity and pessism they face on the path to change, which she said may lead them to feeling "heartbroken, angry, overwhelmed."
