Jampa, Tibet

Born in a small village in the Tibetan plateau, Jampa is a poet and rising community leader. The only person from her village to attend a university, she has improved the lives of hundreds through small solar and literacy development projects. Jampa is committed to giving voice to the invisible women of Tibet and empowering young girls to pursue their dreams.


I want to inspire all women and girls to dare to use the creative power of their minds.


Olanike Olugboji, Nigeria

Olanike hails from the beautiful and resource-abundant country of Nigeria. Yet, she has witnessed the environmental exploitation of her beloved homeland and mobilizes grassroots women to take charge as they have been most impacted. She believes that the only way to ensure the environmental security of Nigeria is to make sure that women have equal voice in these decisions.


Together, women can bridge the gender divide in the environmental sector.


Ynanna Djehuty, United States

Born and raised in the Bronx, Ynanna is an Afro-Dominicana midwife and writer. She raises awareness about maternal and infant health for women in the United States, the country with the worst maternal death rate among industrialized nations. In particular she is dedicated to radically changing the conditions under which women of color are giving birth in the US healthcare system.



Birthing is not just a women’s issue – it is a human rights issue.
