Members of Samoa’s fifth Girls Leading Our World (G.L.O.W.) conference visited the Samoa Observer office yesterday morning.

The G.L.O.W. conference is a five day convention of close to 100 year seven and eight girls from schools in Savai’i, Upolu and Manono.

At G.L.O.W., the girls will hear from speakers on issues related to career development, health, nutrition, and domestic violence awareness. The girls will be challenged to think critically about the material, and about their own development as leaders.

The field trip to the Samoa Observer kicked off G.L.O.W’s Career Development Day where the girls met with Samoa Observers Editor, Mata’afa Keni Lesa and members of the staff.

After a brief introduction into the works of the different departments of a daily newspaper, the girls were given a tour around the office.

During the tour, the heads of different departments gave a small rundown on how work is done in their area and what is required of them on a daily basis.

The tour generated many great questions by the girls who were eager to know more about a career at Samoa Observer.

The development of G.L.O.W. is made possible through the funding and donations of Let Girls Learn, U.N. Women, U.N.D.P., Siva Afi, and Samoa Shipping Corporation.
