Our Team





I am the co-CEO of SAPP alongside Karen! I joined the SAPP community as a volunteer, surprised by the lack of representation and advocacy there is around this major public health dilemma. As I researched further into the initiatives other leaders in our community are spearheading, I was inspired to take lead in this organization and begin connecting with shelters to see how we can impact local communities of menstruators who face this issue. As a co-CEO, my goals pertain to the growth of SAPP as a global organization, as we encourage young leaders around the world to speak up and start their own chapters to spread the efforts. I am beyond excited to be a part of this journey as we work towards fighting period poverty!




Hi! I’m Karen Pham and I'm currently co-CEO for SAPP. Period poverty is a very real issue that isn’t mentioned often but is a great challenge that menstruators face every day. As co-CEO, my goal is to continue spreading awareness and taking action in our communities through drives and donations. I’m incredibly grateful to be a part of such a wonderful team here at SAPP, and am anticipating the future impact we’ll be able to make through our work!

Operations Team

Technology Team


Operations Officer


Hi! I’m Cynthia!. What inspired me to join SAPP was how many still struggle with this issue today. I find it important to address affordability, stigma, lack of support, and lack of access to these essential products, which have all been huge obstacles for menstruators. As an operations officer, I hope to be a part of the movement that not only decreases menstruation stigma but also gathers the funds to help make period equity closer to reality.


Hey! My name is Aarya. My favorite thing about SAPP is how it helps female students have the same resources and educational experience as male students do. I hope to expand the scope of our operation this year and reach out to more students than ever before!!


Operations Officer


Hi! My name is Mihira Gutti and I'm so excited to serve as the Technology Officer for SAPP this year! I joined SAPP because I'd always listen to my mother talk about how hard dealing with her period was when she was younger, and I wanted to make a difference for other people who might be going through the same thing. As Technology Officer, I would love to contribute to helping SAPP's mission reach more individuals and take action to fight this issue!

Communications Team



Communications Officer


Hey!! I’m Nidhi Bhogi! I love playing guitar and writing poetry. What inspired me to join SAPP is its ability to directly help as many poverty-stricken menstruators. Periods are a basic part of life and accessible sanitary products are the least people need when experiencing this cycle. My goals as an officer are to spread awareness about period poverty and in turn, fight the stigma surrounding menstruation.


Hello! I'm Shriya Das, a sophomore attending Irvington High School. From a local to a global scale, many menstruators are suffering from period poverty. What led me to join the Students Against Period Poverty Organization as an officer is how they are doing everything in their power to fight this matter. As a Communications Officer, I want to spread awareness and inspire more people to join this organization.


Communications Officer


Hi! I’m Anchita Arora, a junior at Cupertino High School. Period poverty is an issue that negatively impacts the lives of menstruators worldwide but is still a huge stigma in our society.

I am excited to work with you and this incredible team to make a difference in our community!

Board Members

As SAPP’s other CEO on the advisory board, I can’t wait to see how many menstruators we can impact and how big our nonprofit will grow. My mother growing up in Vietnam constantly faced issues accessing menstrual products at an affordable price, so hearing her story inspired me to start a cause to decrease the detrimental effects of period poverty, starting with my local community members and beyond. 




Hello, I’m Janice Park. I work as the co-CEO for SAPP, managing operations and executive tasks. I’m incredibly proud of everything we’ve been able to accomplish thus far, and I’m excited to continue advocating on behalf of menstruators all over the world! Ask me anything on Messenger.

I am proud to be a member of this important movement to combat period poverty in our communities.

Public Relations Officer


Hey all you cool cats and kittens! I’m the Chief Communications Officer and part of the publicity team with Tanvi. When I first learned about period poverty, I thought it was a problem that only affected third-world countries, so it was shocking to find out this issue affects people everywhere, including our own community. I joined SAPP in order to make a difference in our community with like-minded people.

Hi yall!! I’m Celine Tang, the Chief Financial officer of SAPP. I was able to learn a lot about period poverty through our work as SAPP, and am very happy that we have already reached so many people with our efforts.

Hey! My name’s Shreyas Shenoy and I’m the treasurer of SAPP. I joined SAPP to give this problem the attention it deserves. While starting at the local level, SAPP will hopefully grow to reach more people affected. I’m proud to be a member of this community and I look forward to working with those of you who will join us in the future :)))) 




Hey, y'all! I’m Hema Madichetty. At SAPP, I am the secretary and also a coordinator with Mihir.

Technology Officer


Heyo! I’m Yousuf Mustafa. I’m a Tech Officer here at SAPP, along with Tvisha. There’s a staggeringly high amount of women who are deprived of menstrual products, whether they are in impoverished areas or not, and to be a part of an organization that actively combats this issue, as well as SAPP, makes me all the more determined to help make a difference in any way that I can :))


Communications Officer


Hello! My name is Eowyn Ream, and I am a Communications Officer at SAPP. After understanding the severity of period poverty around the world and the lack of discussion surrounding menstruation itself, I decided to change the narrative alongside the SAPP community- by writing. Through engaging and educational content, I hope to contribute to a societal shift that welcomes menstruation into the conversation.


Supply/Operations Officer


Hi!! My name is Grace Lu. I’m excited to be serving as one of SAPP’s supply/operations officers. Period poverty is a serious issue that affects many menstruators but is not widely talked about. As a SAPP officer, I hope to better educate myself and others on the pressing issue of period poverty. I am proud to be able to stand with SAPP to alleviate period poverty in the world!

Communications Officer

kayenne - SAPP.heic

Hi! I’m Kayenne Ohno, a senior at Notre Dame Academy Girls High School. I’m a Communications Officer at SAPP and I was inspired to join SAPP because there is a lack of knowledge of period poverty in our communities. I believe that it is vital for others to discuss an issue that affects all menstruators around the world. As a Communications Officer, I am excited to educate those around me and make a global difference on menstruation with SAPP! 


Communications Officer

Hello! My name is Christina Yang. I am serving as your communications officer this year at SAPP. Once I did some research for my QUEST project on period poverty, I was astonished at how the issue is not being talked about more and that so many groups are disproportionately affected. By being part of SAPP, I hope to spread the word and help lessen the issue through donation drives and simply writing about it online. 



Supply Officer


Hi! I’m Uyen Nguyen. I am a Supply Officer at SAPP, along with Colleen and Karen. Period Poverty is an overlooked issue and I love that organizations, like SAPP, are working to help women who don’t have the privilege to buy menstrual products such as pads, tampons, and etc. I love giving back to the community and I’m grateful that we have an amazing student-run nonprofit organization that strives to help others. 


Media Officer


Hello! I’m Angela and I am a Media Officer for SAPP. I’ve always heard of how inaccessible period products can be, especially for marginalized groups, and I’m excited to be a part of a group that is working to directly help solve this problem. I’m eager to help SAPP destigmatize this issue as periods always seem to be a sensitive issue and things like period tax are hard to speak out about. For hobbies my favorite sport is wrestling!
