What would you do if you could take a year off?

We all have different answers to that question, whether it is spending time with family, traveling, volunteering, or going back to school. Microsoft Vice President, Margo Day took a year off to help thousands of girls in rural Kenya stay in school and gain better control of their futures. She did that, in part, by helping build a school, to give girls access to education about choices regarding their futures. What an important message in time to celebrate International Day of the Girl, which takes place tomorrow. We were honored to welcome Margo Day on New Day with this terrific story of affirmation.
