Educate Girls


 

 

 

 

i'm most passionate about

the movement for gender equality and education for all, especially girls.

In addition to Anna, pictured with me above in Tanzania, these are the She's the First Scholars that I've personally sponsored for one or more years with my #SweatforSTF campaigns. (Agness & Anna have graduated!)

If you don't already know, She's the First is a non-profit that fights gender inequality through education; we're building a movement of activists, student leaders, and girls who will be the first in their families to graduate from high school.

Fifty million girls of secondary school age are denied an education. This is unacceptable. We know that when a young woman graduates, she has the power to determine her own future. This is why we're so focused on giving her the support she needs to reach that milestone.

Everyone has a role to play in making the world a more equal place for women and girls. Please join us!

LEADERSHIP


 

 

 

 

LEADERSHIP


 

 

 

 

what i contribute to the movement 

is my ability to inspire individuals to unlock their power to make change and help philanthropists and corporations to invest. 

My natural strengths lie in activating younger generations to take action, helping them to find their voice, confidence, and full potential to make a difference. I've quickly learned how to reach up to older generations and across industry sectors to create high-value partnerships that meet our shared goal of education equality. 

My training as a journalist, mixed with my expertise in social and digital media, has given me an edge in launching successful grassroots fundraising campaigns and high-profile events. I strategize communications and nurture relationships with everyone from the $5 donor to the five-figure funder.

I draw my experience from:

  • being a first-generation college graduate
  • 10 years of intensive non-profit leadership
  • 5 years of corporate experience in digital magazine publishing, including being the first social media editor of Seventeen.com
  • engaging with the ever-expanding She's the First campus network of 215+ chapters
  • managing a $1.5 million dollar annual budget
