Youth Ambassadors Who are 13-19
June! New Mexico!
My name is June, I am in 8th grade and 13 years old. I am a member of the National Junior Honor Society, Mayor’s Volunteer Partners, and Dress a Girl Around the World. Helping out in my community and country is a passion of mine. Some of my interests include sewing, art, and academic competitions, I’m always looking for the perfect opportunity to learn something new. I attend Aztec Church of Christ, where I began participating with our local Dress a Girl Around the World. I’ve enjoyed contributing my time to the group and recently began sewing the dresses and found I’ve really enjoyed it! The opportunity to make something so special for these girls is truly a humbling experience. I love my Lord and hope to show His light as I represent Dress a Girl in my community.
Hi! My name is Magnolia Swire, I am 13 years old, and a triplet. Some of my hobbies include sewing, musical theater, reading, and writing stories. (so basically anything artsy) I have been sewing for about 4 years, and I love it. :) When I first heard about Dress A Girl Around the World, I knew I wanted to help out as much as I could. And when I read about why the dress labels were sewn on to every dress, it made me so sad to think that in so many places human trafficking was and still is so prominent. That is why I love being a part of something that gives other girls a chance to feel safe, and know that God's love for us is unconditional. I am thrilled to teach other people about it too. I plan on having a get together with some of my friends and family to teach them all about what Dress A Girl Around The World is, and how to make the dresses sustainable, beautiful, and “God’s Best Dress”. Hopefully I can even plan a larger event at my church once Covid has died down. I dream that one day I may be able to go deliver the dresses for DAG as well! So I am eagerly taking part in this beautiful organization to give girls all over the world dignity, protection, and the kind of courage only the Lord can provide, all the while growing in my journey of faith. I am discovering new ways to spread the kingdom of God! To stop focusing on worldly possessions, but instead focus on treasures only found with Christ.
British Columbia, Canada, Youth Ambassador - Laura
My name is Laura and I’m a volunteer-minded 16-year-old living in West Vancouver, British Columbia. At school I enjoy playing in concert and jazz bands, competing on the badminton team, and participating in science club and and many other activities. I hope to bring Dress A Girl Around the World to my school and others in my community who are eager to sew beautiful dresses for a wonderful cause. Though just recently becoming a Youth Ambassador, I am very excited to be a part of an organization that is doing such important work to benefit girls in need around the world. My Nonna taught me to sew and I have grown up around strong women who spend much of their time trying to improve the lives of others, so Dress a Girl is a meaningful blend of many things I enjoy! I look forward to creating awareness about DAG and inspiring others around me to help bring joy and dignity to young girls.

San Francisco Bay Area! Gigi!
My name is Gigi. I am a San Francisco Bay Area high school student. Dress A Girl speaks to me because of the issues it values—social justice, human development and ethical integrity. As the Bay Area Youth Ambassador, I have the opportunity to be a representative for change, through an artistic medium I love, that brings joy to children all over our world.
Hi, my name is Aashna! I’m 16 years old, and I live in Barrington, Illinois. Currently, I’m involved with Science Olympiad, Class Board, Badminton, etc at my high school, and I’m eager to introduce Dress A Girl to my school. I’ve always loved sewing, and when I discovered Dress A Girl, I instantly loved it. I’m so glad that I get to use my passion to make a difference by empowering girls and young women. Dress A Girl Around the World is such an important organization that empowers and protects girls around the world by providing them with a dress they can call their own. I’m honored to be representing Dress A Girl as a youth ambassador. My goal is to continue making dresses and to spread awareness about this wonderful organization within my community!
I’m excited about the Dress a Girl Around The World program. I like the idea of providing dresses for little girls that may not otherwise have a new dress. My goal is to contribute 100 dresses in the next year. I’ve talked to classmates, relatives and community members about the project and they’re all excited and willing to help out. I’ve also spoken with my dentist about sending dresses with him on his next humanitarian trip to Haiti.
My grandmother was a seamstress and I was fortunate that she taught me all the basics about sewing before she passed away. Now I can use those skills to bring a smile to a little girl’s face.

My name is Lizzie, I am from Brookhaven, Mississippi. I just recently found out about Dress a Girl Around The World. As soon as my mom told me about it I instantly new I wanted to be involved. I have completed 5 dresses already and I'm planning on making lots more, as well as getting many more people involved!
Washington Youth Ambassador--Christine
My name is Christine and as a long time Girl Scout I’ve learned the importance of making a difference in the lives of others. It was through Girl Scouts that I first became aware of Dress a Girl Around the World. I knew I wanted to become involved with this organization when I began looking for a project for my Girl Scout Silver Award. As a girl helping girls I’m excited about sharing the vision of Dress A Girl and inspiring my community of friends, neighbors, churches and others to join me in sewing dresses which provide safety and joy to so many girls in need. This fun and creative service opportunity has a serious and lasting global impact that I’m proud to be a part of.
Halifax Canada Youth Ambassador - Ashley
My name is Ashley and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I came across Dress A Girl last year when I was looking for an outreach project for my church and school to get involved with. I immediately knew this was the project I wanted to do when I came across the website.
After many pillowcase donations, members from my church and school community came together for a sewing party and sewed over 150 dresses.
We are planning on taking these dresses on our mission trip this March to the Dominican Republic and see directly how this will change a young girls life. I was so happy to see how so many different people came together to make this project a success.
Knowing that people live in poverty breaks my heart, and makes me want to do my part to make their life better.
As a teenage girl who has the privilege of owning many dresses, I can't begin to imagine not having even one dress to call my own!
Dress A Girl Is such a simple yet great campaign that helps so many girls feel loved and important. I love helping others and spreading God's love. I definitely think by being a part of the Dress A Girl team, it can help me with my dream to help others even more.
