October 2017: Kiran Ebrahim
Congratulations to our Leading Woman of the Month for October, Kiran Ebrahim! She is currently a freshman majoring in Business Administration. To say that she is highly accomplished would be an understatement. She created her own start-up in high school called Inconspicuous to empower rape and domestic abuse survivors as well as provide them with lawyers and safety from nearby shelters. If that isn't short of amazing, Kiran also lobbied and passed two bills, Girls Count Act and Girls Refugee Education, for the Girl Up United Nations Organization on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. In addition, she gave a TedxTalk in Spanish about gender inequality in Latin America and ways non-violent movements can help mitigate this social issue. Kiran was chosen as Atlanta Magazine’s 2017 Women Making a Mark Campaign’s Rising Star (http://www.atlantamagazine.com/women-making-a-mark/kiran-ebrahim/). She has played flag football for 8 years, had the opportunity to represent team USA in Dubai for flag football, and has traveled and volunteered in over 40 countries. She hopes to be a social entrepreneur in the future! Kiran, we are so amazed by all that you have accomplished and we are so excited to stand by you while you change the world. Always remember that Theta loves you!
