Inspiration

"This is Camila.

She's 8 years old, and she lives on the farm. She loves reading and writing. Economic realities being what they are, I always bring her lots of pencils and pens and notebooks.

Her job is to write the daily list of jobs for the farm, and sometimes she comes into town with me to make sure that everything I do gets crossed off properly. Yesterday's list had some spelling errors and wasn't very neatly written, so I've brought her into town with me and she's having a spelling and writing lesson whilst I take calls from clients in the UK.

Hopefully this'll in some small way expose her to the notions that her education is worth investing in; that work doesn't have to be in the fields or on a shop floor; that employment and life doesn't end at the next town over; that it;s worth learning other languages; and maybe even that she's worth being exposed to this stuff, even is she's a girl."
