As an older brother of a young girl, it pains me to hear that female students are not attending school during their menstruation period. I want to use an electronic platform to share information about Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) in secondary schools so that girls can understand and practice MHM, and we can reduce the number of dropouts from schools due to menstruation.

As a young, female entrepreneur, I want to install sanitary pad vending machines in schools to help adolescent girls have access to affordable pads. Then I want to collect data to prove that these vending machines can reduce school absenteeism due to menstruation. It is not only about being an entrepreneur, but also accomplishing the goal of helping my fellow girls and women, because this is the problem we women face.
