We are pleased to welcome a new member of our team! She has already been doing a fabulous job with our social media posts and we’re so thankful for her amazing expertise and energy. Check out her bio:
Eghosa Asemota is a young feminist from Queens, New York. She is 21 years old and a graduating senior majoring in Philosophy, Politics and Law (PPL) at SUNY Binghamton. Born to Nigerian parents and growing up with a large family, she learned at an early age the necessity of communal responsibility and the beauty of connection, support and interdependence. In high school, she was President of her school’s GlamourGals chapter, which was the largest service club in the school’s history. She eventually went on to work for the national organization, GlamourGals, as their youngest employee for three years. She has done peer education ranging from spearheading HIV prevention initiatives in her local community and facilitating interactive workshops to encourage genuine leadership in youth. This past summer, she worked with the Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO) to galvanize the mobilization of women’s groups, social justice and grassroots community leaders, and feminist activists, and intensify the presence of women at the People’s Climate March in New York City on September 21. Her love for social media and endorsement of socially innovative organizations has led her to manage several nonprofits, NGOs and international advocacy networks over the last five years. She enjoys inspiring folks in 140 characters or less.
