What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?

My pursuit for gender equality stems primarily from personal reflection and observation of the injustice of the status quo that explicitly or implicitly oppresses women and gender nonconforming people. This lived experience coupled with my academic interests made me eager to make gender equality a reality.

Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.

I would say my biggest win as an advocate are the discussions and debates I moderated but also the resolutions I helped establish in my community, which will allow for much more organized advocacy.

Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?

Watching good movies and writing.
