What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
I used to write posts on Facebook about gender stereotypes and toxic masculinity. I used to give speeches in mega-events about the same issues. I post videos about scholarships for women on my YouTube, and the first video for was about a girl who traveled the US, promoting her as a success story.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
My first video on my YouTube channel, which was about a marginalized girl who traveled to the US to participate in a women empowerment program. This video led to the establishment of an initiative to encourage girls to travel abroad in exchange programs.
