Nadya Okamoto, Founder of PERIOD

While struggling with homelessness as a teen, Nadya Okamoto discovered the biggest challenge of their living situations: "The unaddressed natural need of periods." That’s why Okamoto started PERIOD.org, a nonprofit that gives women access to the period products they need to feel confident and clean every menstruation cycle, no matter their income. Now, it’s the largest youth-run nonprofit in women’s health.
