Behind the scenes in Dubai
A message from Tennille Amor...
2016 HAS BEEN A YEAR OF HIGHS AND LOWS
I know that a lot of people are ready to 'Walk Away' from this year and start fresh in 2017. This video is a representation of those feelings. I shot it last year and was planning on releasing it earlier this year, but there never seemed to be a good time.
I started my year performing my song 'I Am a Girl' at the United Nations headquarters in New York, speaking about the importance of Gender Equality, and inspiring women and girls around the world to believe that they can be anything that they want to be in life. Later in the year, I became a UN Women Planet 5050 Youth Champion, and I have been continuing to advocate for a Gender-Equal world.
I spent a brief amount of time with Hillary Clinton when she was running for President and saw firsthand how far we have come as women, and then, in November, learned how far we still have to go.
I was blessed to perform and speak all around the world this year and met some really incredible people along the way. I feel like I live out of a suitcase more and more with each year that passes, and I can't really complain because I am so thankful that I am doing what I love, and what I genuinely believe to be my purpose in life.
I traveled to Tanzania again this year with my organization, E.P.I.C., and we drilled another clean water well. We are running 4 more trips in 2017, so if you're interested in coming, click here. The trips are almost full already, and the year hasn't even started yet!
Those of you who know me best know that this year was filled with some difficult times as well, but I released this video as a reminder to anyone who needs to 'Walk Away' from anything that is holding you back from reaching your fullest potential. I believe that 2017 is going to be a phenomenal year, and I am looking forward to seeing more of you all in the year to come.
Thank you for contributing to my 2016 with your words of encouragement and love. Sending you inspiration and light for a happy and fulfilling year ahead.
