Problem: Women all over the world suffer under the unjust taboos of menstruation. In industrialized countries it is seen as disgusting and embarrassing, while in developing countries it is seen as shameful, unclean, or a disease.

I’ve always created my own quirky solutions to problems. One day I was finally fed up looking for my go-to menstrual products in my purse. I took to the internet to find a solution and only came across a few homemade items. So, of course, I designed my own. And then I came up with a few more design ideas! I got quite a few laughs that started conversations about my knowledge of the issues which led me to realize that I had to get these to women everywhere. What a great way to spread the word and raise money to fight for the rights of the menstruating, so that one day we can all be period proud!
