What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
I have experienced and encountered gender discrimination, although I am still an adolescent in school. There was sexual harassment exerted by male students, and there was silence from adults. I am still a teenager, but I want to attempt to improve myself and the world by stepping up.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
I organized and processed the MYP Personal Project with the topic of "Modern Feminism" and exhibited the work in the Personal Project exhibition held in school. Through this advocacy, I delivered the meaning of feminism to the school community and parents.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
Reading and writing poems and novels, photography, watching movies, and talking with friends and family.
