Meghan Markle is inspiring young women all over the world with a strong message.

She said this while giving the keynote address at the virtual U.N. Foundation’s 2020 Girl Up Leadership Summit on July 14.

The Duchess of Sussex celebrated the “young women around the world who aren’t just poised to change the world but have already begun changing the world.”

“Your generation is often referred to as digital natives, and you understand that our online world has the power to affirm and support as much as it does to harm. We are not meant to be breaking each other down; we are meant to be building each other up. 

“So use your voice both on-and-offline to do just that – build each other up, support each other. There will always be negative voices and sometimes those voices can appear to be outsized, and sometimes they can appear to be painfully loud. You can and will use your own voices to drown out the noise. Because that’s what it is – just noise. But your voices are those of truth. And hope. And your voices can and should be much louder.”

Meghan encouraged attendees to keep speaking up, saying: “I know you have already done so much and made so many people’s lives better. The moment we are living through right now asks all of us to do more. It’s a moment where your voices, and your action, have never been more urgently needed.”
