National Leadership Team
Founder & President
At thirteen years old, I attended my first girls and leadership conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was then, that I realized the profound effect of bringing together successful female leaders and role models for teenage girls. The conference ignited my passion for social change, gender equality, mentorship, and education. The saying that "you can't be what you can't see" embodies my belief that it is important for girls to have strong female mentors to understand that their future opportunities are limitless. In addition, through my internship working at an underprivileged childcare center, I realized the issue of limited access and funding for out-of-school programs. Thus, equalizing opportunities for all girls, irrespective of socioeconomic factors is critical and essential. The positive impact of successful female mentors, building critical life skills in girls and connecting to a supportive community are tangible ways I believe barriers to girl empowerment can be eliminated. This was the impetus for me to start the LAUNCH project. I look forward to working with you to launch teen girls into leaders and changemakers!
