Education is the key to solving issues. If you don’t know about an issue you can’t act against it. Any action for a better world, even small, can make a change. We need change, so let’s act!

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
Since I can remember, I have had a call for fighting for justice and equality. In the past years, I have come across many shocking examples of inequality and gender-based violence. I knew that I had to act in any way I could to change this awful reality.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
I am an ambassador at “The Blossom Girls Club” where we equip girls with the tools to build leadership skills, know their rights, and plan their careers. I am the president of my school’s Human Rights Club, where we raise awareness around issues like discrimination and the importance of respect.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and having family tea parties and road trips. I am also interested in photography and graphic design. I love reading about the latest news and participating in debates.
