Middlesbrough Rubies charity helps girls to be proud of themselves
In 2016, a report ranked Middlesbrough as the worst place for a girl to grow up.
The charity Rubies was set up in response to teach girls that if they work together, anything is possible.
BBC presenter Steph McGovern, who is from Middlesbrough, went to meet some of them.
This video was created as part of We Are Middlesbrough - a BBC project with people of the town to tell the stories that matter to them.
