We’re reliving the highlights of the #Sweatworking Summit and loving every minute. In this keynote speech from Nadya Okamoto, she shares the story of how she became “rather obsessed with menstruation” and followed that passion into a life of entrepreneurship and serving the public.
Nadya Okamoto just turned 23, and with so much social enterprise under her belt, we’re proud to simply say her name. She founded Period Inc in 2014 as a high schooler to help distribute menstrual hygiene products and to help end a state imposed tax on menstrual products – or, the period tax. She published her book Period Power: A Manifesto for the Menstrual Movement in 2018. And this year, she co-founded a company built around changing the period experience, August. She is currently a senior at Harvard University.
