From personal struggles to enormous global issues, the youth of this decade have a lot on their plate. Just like a single strong person cannot survive on their own, we need to be a big pack in order to achieve something greater than survival.

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
A few years back, I was volunteering at a nationwide youth forum. My duty was to read applications and nominate qualified applicants. During my work, one of my supervisors told me to take all the male applicants to create a balanced gender ratio. I felt terrible because instead of young women who actually cared about the forum, people who couldn't care enough to fill their phone number correctly would be chosen. Since then, I never lost a chance to speak up about gender equality.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
I recently started working on a personal campaign plan about how gender sections in stores should welcome any person of any gender. This is still in progress, but this is my first sole and original work and starting this was my biggest achievement so far.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
I love all sports, especially basketball. Walking alone on a chilly evening clears my mind more than anything. Above all, spending time with loved ones.
