    Ep. 4: Inequality In The Healthcare Sector, Advocating For Those With Disabilities, and Menstrual Health with Stuti Chakraborty

    Stuti Chakraborty is currently an intern at Christian Medical College, Vellore. She is also a country representative for Healthcare Information for All, part of the SDG 3 working group for the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth, a country correspondent for YourCommonwealth, a communications team correspondent for the Global Healthcare Workforce Network, and a country correspondent for IHP Global.

She was also the only youth speaker from India to shed light on the topic of ‘Gender Equity in the Healthcare Sector’ for the GHWN Youth Hub Online Conference hosted in December 2019. She has represented her country across several platforms in the past including being a youth representative from the UN MGCY at the Global Conference on Primary Healthcare held in Astana in 2018. In her work, she advocates for young people's health with a special focus on the rights of Persons with Disabilities. She wishes to pursue research in the field of neurosciences in the near future.

    Ep. 3: Stigma Surrounding Mental Health, Self-Care in Quarantine, + The Bottle Project with Simran Kapoor

    Ep. 3: Stigma Surrounding Mental Health, Self-Care in Quarantine, + The Bottle Project with Simran Kapoor

    Today, I had the amazing opportunity to speak with Simran Kapoor, the Founder and President of The Bottle Project. The Bottle Project is a youth-led organization that follows the idea that there is a bottle inside each individual that collects their thoughts. Her mission is simple: to fill the bottles of those around her with positivity. Through the rhetoric of the bottle, she hopes to establish a sense of positivity and individualism in youth, reinforcing the idea of positive mental health. During our conversation, Simran discussed her thoughts regarding the stigma surrounding mental health, self-care in quarantine, starting a nonprofit organization, and more.

    Ep. 2: Organizing A Black Lives Matter Protest, Starting A Nonprofit Organization, My Roots Are Rich, + POC vs. Black with Nyla Choates

    Nyla Choates is a 17 year old youth activist from the Bay Area. She recently organized her own local Black Lives Matter protest in Milpitas, after she realized that it was time for her city to break silence. She was able to have not only a powerful protest, but a peaceful one with thousands of people in attendance. Nyla is extremely passionate about fighting systemic racism within the education system. To combat this, she recently started her own nonprofit called My Roots Are Rich. The mission of her nonprofit is to empower, inspire, and educate people by reinforcing the rich history of African Americans.  Nyla’s favorite quote is “ You have to be the change that you want to see in the world.” She wants to be the change.
