Julia Gillard Shares Adorable Pic Of Her As A Schoolgirl
Former Prime Minister Julia Gillard has given us a glimpse at her days as a schoolgirl, posting a very cute yearbook photo on her Facebook page.
Gillard shared the pic as part of Throwback Thursday (#TBT), along with a powerful message about the importance of education for girls around the world.
"I want to see a future where every girl is educated and empowered to reach their full potential, just like I was," she wrote on the Facebook post.
"I’m sharing my #TBT school photo in solidarity with the 31 million girls around the world who are still denied the right to go to school. On #IWD2015 join me and stand #UpForSchool by signing the upforschool.org petition."
The adorable pic, which was only posted an hour ago, has already had over 12,000 likes!
And if the comments are anything to go by, there's still plenty of support for our former PM, who is Board Chair of the Global Partnership for Education, including this 'top comment' by Garry:
"The pic of what the future of Australia should've been, a strong compassionate woman who was cut down in her prime whilst doing her very best for the country she so adores."
Feeling curious, we did a quick Google search for some other throwback pics and here's what we found:
