Safiya Speaks Up!

Safiya Speaks Up! is described as a one-of-a-kind book that follows a young girl as she navigates the distinction between uncomfortable and safe interactions in her community. The project was created, written, and illustrated by She’s the First Girl Activist Fellows between the ages of 15 and 21 across Malaysia, Kenya, the Philippines, and the United States. We catch up with Allison Choong, who illustrated and co-authored the book - for which she was also nominated for a Women of The Future Southeast Asia prize - to find out more.
