Nadya Okamoto is committed to making a difference for girls and women living in period poverty. Nadya experienced homelessness during her teenage years, and she found that one of the many struggles homeless girls and women face is access to period products.To address this need, in 2004, when she was sixteen, Nadya started the nonprofit with her friend Vincent Forand. It has become the largest youth-run nonprofit for women’s health, fighting period poverty and period stigma through education and advocacy!
