Hi! I'm the Founder & CEO of an awesome startup nonprofit organization called Find Your Power. We empower underrepresented women worldwide by expanding their access to the internet and resources, with the ultimate aim of narrowing the gender gap. Our organization is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, but international efforts will begin in South Africa in early 2017. I lived in South Africa for 2.5 years and received a masters in Development Studies. My thesis research was a case study at the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children. The Centre is a full service domestic abuse shelter. The women I met there were amazing testaments to the human spirit. In spite of going through horrific ordeals, they were positive, hopeful, and very resilient. However, because they lacked marketable skills and had lower levels of education, they were often forced to go back to their perpetrators. This is just one example of why Find Your Power is necessary and useful. There are millions of women around the world that could benefit from access to the internet and all the resources it brings.
