What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?

With gender inequality, the world will still have a lot to work on to ensure every woman and young person has equal access to SRH services and information and their basic needs are met. But with gender equality, the world will be a happy place for everyone.

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

Through gathering stories of change from the field in rural areas, I have gotten a chance to meet with a lot of women and young people and change their mindsets regarding negative information surrounding use of contraception and other SRH services and information.

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

Listening and dancing to music, vacations, and watching movies.
