An eleven-year-old girl gave a thought-provoking speech at the Villa Education Trust speech competition on gender equality, and won.

The Mt Hobson Middle School student delivered her speech confidently and elegantly as she wowed the judges with her insight on typical gender stereotypes.

The girl, Florence Akauola, said her gender does not define who she is as a person and that she does not want to fit the idea of what a girl is supposedly to be.
