I am a first-year student at Harvard College, originally from Portland, Oregon. I am the Founder and Executive Director of PERIOD, a global youth-run non-profit that strives to provide and celebrate menstrual hygiene through advocacy, education and service — through the global distribution of menstrual hygiene products and engagement of youth leadership in a nationwide network of campus chapters. I became passionate about menstrual health after being introduced to the need during a time when my family did not have a home of their own.

My HERlead Project: PERIOD INC.

My HERlead Project will provide menstrual health products to women in need as well as fight to break the stigma around menstruation through a national conference called Period Con. It will bring together chapter leaders from around the country for a day of learning and skill building.
