For a future society free from gender discrimination, young people need to be at the forefront of advocating for equality and embracing non-binary genders. By encouraging dialogue and awareness of gender equality through education and youth engagement initiatives, we can create an environment where all individuals' identities are respected and celebrated regardless of sex or gender identity.

Bio

Linh is passionate about her work as the Head of PR & Communications for a rapidly evolving tech startup in Dubai. When away from work, Linh also dedicates time to bettering the lives of refugees and immigrants through her voluntary role at USAHello – a U.S. nonprofit aiming to support these underprivileged communities. With a profound academic and professional foundation in journalism and communication, Linh is committed to elevating the visibility of young people – particularly women – across major media outlets in Vietnam.

What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?

My upbringing in an Asian society exposed me to the realities of gender inequality. From a young age, outdated stereotypes and norms shaped my perception that women were only meant for domestic roles. In response, my pursuit for real change has been ignited - determined not only to challenge archaic beliefs and break discriminatory boundaries but also to uplift fellow female voices across Asia in the quest for true gender parity.

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

As a communication professional, I am passionate about uncovering and amplifying the voices of youth, particularly women, and championing gender equality by creating more equitable representation for youth and women in media. Through my media coverage that highlights the many inspiring initiatives of young people across all social, cultural, and political spheres, I have been able to shatter outdated stereotypes of young people being incompetent or unambitious while advocating for gender equality overall.

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

When I'm not fighting for gender equality, my downtime is filled with things that feed both body and mind. Books keep me up to date on the latest ideas and concepts, while tea or coffee offers an invigorating break throughout the day. Cooking allows me to relax in a creative environment as well as enjoy delicious food afterwards! Reading articles about new tech developments helps ensure I stay ahead of emerging trends within our ever-evolving world. Writing also allows my thoughts to take form through blog posts or other literary works that express myself more fully.
