In Yes Please, Amy explains how she goes through life saying yes to every opportunity that comes her way. It's opened her up to opportunities and given her chances. But what if you’re a teen girl with limited access to resources and role models, and very few opportunities come across your path? Girls Write Now, New York’s first and only writing and mentoring organization for high school girls, and Amy’s Smart Girls, makes sure those opportunities are there for girls to say Yes! to.

What was the moment that your life changed because of saying yes? What was your Yes! moment?

Share your story with Amy Poehler, Girls Write Now and Wattpadders everywhere, and you could win!
