Project Description

Joana Baptista

Age 18, England – South East

I believe that achieving is only worthwhile if you’re helping others achieve too.

I’ve worked to help others reach their potential through a series of volunteering projects, including teaching science, computer science and internet safety to children from economically disadvantaged communities. I’ve also run sessions for teachers at my school on helping girls combat online misogyny.

Most recently, I’ve founded She Dot, a social enterprise which encourages girls to pursue careers in areas such as STEM and entrepreneurship, through skills workshops, talks and career insight days.
