Cambodian Reading Clubs Promote Female Friendships
At the Doris Dillon School in Sangker Doch, Cambodia, Jennifer Estrada is having trouble teaching dance. Not a specific dance, just the concept of dance. A silly, short dance is a key component of one of Global G.L.O.W. and HerStory’s warm-up exercises — meant to get the girls in the after-school reading program comfortable enough with one another to discus the story they read for this month’s meeting.
2 Santa Ana teens run ‘anxiety camp’ to help other girls dealing with common mental health issue
SANTA ANA As Dinah Martinez walked to a girls mentorship program brainstorming ideas for a summer camp project late last year, her NOVA Academy schoolmate Janet Martinez brought up an issue that hit close to home.
“She started talking about her anxiety, and that’s how I told her that I was struggling with the same things that she was going through,” Dinah Martinez, 17, recounted. “So we both decided to do a mental health camp to help other people.”
The unrelated girls, Santa Ana residents who on June 13 graduated from high school, brought their camp idea to Global G.L.O.W. (Girls Leading Our World). The Santa Ana-based nonprofit awarded them a $5,000 grant to put on the camp for other teenage girls.

‘HerStory’ Aims to Help Girls Find Themselves
The sun beats down with ferocity on Doris Dillon School in rural Kampot. It’s closing in on lunchtime, an hour when most school students grow restless and ready to bolt from their desks. But the girls in the “HerStory” classroom are absorbed, adding final details to paintings that use symbolic shapes and colors to convey a “landscape” of their current circumstances. They are bent over their work with great intensity and ownership, overseen by local mentors who stop to chat with or encourage them. This is not a room full of your average shy or resigned girls, learning by rote, though. It’s a powerful room full of the future.

You Glow Girl!
There’s an aura of excitement that surrounds Global G.L.O.W. Executive Director and founder Kylie Schuyler. But that can be attributed to her passion for her cause: since 2011, the Santa Ana-based nonprofit has worked to build leadership in girls in grades five through 12 through literacy, creativity and positive mentorships.
One Laguna woman’s art- and literacy-based Global GLOW program helps girls in Santa Ana and around the world.
With each stroke of the pen or paintbrush, girls at the Global GLOW after-school program discover pieces of themselves, expressing emotions and personality through poetry, drawing, painting, taking photos or making collages. These projects provide a creative outlet for teen and pre-teen girls, giving shape to their hopes and dreams and helping them cope with difficult experiences like bullying, all under the guidance of college-aged female mentors. Then by sharing their work, the girls gain confidence and, over time, develop a more defined sense of self.
