Redefine Twenty is a social platform to celebrate, empower, and educate young females through unapologetic and uncensored stories.
Why the name Redefine Twenty?
Well, as a female minority in my twenties, while navigating through my personal experiences and education, I have uncovered my political, social, and personal values which have awakened and uncovered my identity as activist and educator.
I’ve always been passionate about writing and social justice issues like women’s rights and race and discrimination. I didn’t have the opportunity to learn or discuss feminism and understand gender inequality until my fourth-year university feminism and gender studies course. That really opened my eyes to the importance of education and empowerment.
The fundamental basic understanding of human rights is recognizing the inequality embedded in our society. It is through education and stories that we can begin to uplift these rooted issues of colonialism, capitalism, and white privilege in order to understand concepts of inequality in race, gender, sex, class, religion, etc.
Where do you see Redefine Twenty in the future?
I want to create Redefine Twenty into a business that can provide equitable jobs and opportunities for young women to share their passions, experiences, thoughts, and stories. I want to create events, workshops, and discussions for women, by women. Whether that be writing, photography, music, event planning, social media influencer, fashion, etc. whatever that passion or skill may be, it is welcomed!
Based in Hamilton, Ontario, I want to grow our community and although I am unable to pay for any of these positions right now, I hope to in the near future.
