“It is not a small feat and we haven’t made enough noise I think but from now, I think we will make more noise. We need to celebrate our successes and the successes of young people like Calista.
“It is inevitable that when girls are empowered, they can drive a lot of greatness. It is our desire as government to ensure that young girls are given opportunities to explore their talents with a lot of guidance. As we empower young girls, we should also remember to also bring along our young boys,” she said.
