my mission statement:

Social Media Icon- Change the Cycle

CHANGE THE CYCLE by decreasing disparities within menstruators through education and access to quality products and services

ABOUT ME

Visiting India around 2 years ago, I was met with the high prevalence of health inequity surrounding the various socioeconomic classes within India.

Driven by the profound revelations I discovered as part of my period poverty research, I was able to understand that developed countries like the US and UK were affected by period inequity, in addition to  third-world countries. Various homeless populations and women below the income line continue to suffer from health conditions due to period poverty and taxes. The negligence is something I would like to take the initiative to address, because menstrual disparities and stigma is something generations of women in my culture have gone through—including me. 

 

With this understanding and deep study, I wrote a research paper to truly grasp the various environmental factors within period poverty—education, economy, conservatism, gender bias etc. Using this website as a platform, I would like to distribute my self-made kits initially to the homeless populations within Illinois, but would like to make it an end goal to distribute these to organizations who can gain access to many foreign countries.
