How Nadya Okamoto Went from Homeless to Award-Winning Girl Boss.

“Last year, now-19-year-old Nadya Okamoto was a Women of Worth honoree, L’Oréal Paris’s annual philanthropic program that chooses ten women to receive a grant of up to $35,000 for their contributions to the world. The Portland, Oregon-native founded non-profit organization Period (it was then called Camions of Care), which provides feminine-hygiene products to the homeless. It’s close to Okamoto’s heart since when she was 15 years old she was homeless with her family. During her two hour commute to school, she spoke to many homeless women who faced difficulty when menstruating, and we’re too embarrassed to ask for help. This led to Okamoto starting Period, and so far she’s helped more than 78,000 people. She does all this while at the same time attending Harvard College. Feel lazy, yet?”

“Founder @nadyaokamoto has been busy engaging with new audiences about our #menstrualmovement — and we are just getting started. Please reach out if you or anyone you know might be interested in getting involved with our #periodmovement as a chapter leader or volunteer. Thank you!”

A big CONGRATS to Nadya.
