Hello there, you've reached Pink Power!
My name is Anisha and I am currently a senior attending Palm Harbor Univerity High School. I'm in the International Baccalaureate program and truly enjoy the challenging rigor of the classes. I know I know, super cheesy, but I'm one of those gals who love to be busy. I always need to be doing something, which is why the pandemic really turned my world upside down. Self-isolation is so far from what I'm used to - school days filled with the most difficult classes available, afternoons packed with extracurriculars I love, nights consisting of endless chores and homework, and weekends full of social outings. Now life is much different.
In spring of 2020, I was faced with some very challenging experiences relating to the female health of myself and others. Normally, I handle pain by blabbering on to friends or distracting myself with work. However in quarantine, I couldn't really do any of that.
Enter Pink Power.
Pink Power was birthed out of my desire to discuss openly the unique issues that pertain to menstruating women. I personally have struggled to find a community with which I could feel comfortable sharing the intimate details of how womanhood has affected my body physically. After educating myself further, I discovered that there are a variety of social and political issues affecting women that need to be addressed and I decided to use this platform to speak out on such matters.
As a visitor here, you are part of a fantastic sisterhood. Feel free to leave comments on any blog posts and respond to other Pink Power viewers. I would love for this community to grow and include females of all ages and identities. I will be sure to answer any questions and provide advice if you request it!
Thank you so much for being part of the Pink Power sisterhood!
P.S. The photo above was taken on my trip to Iceland. Pretty cool right?
*Pun intended :P
Another facet of fulfilling the Pink Power mission of normalizing period talk and supporting women is the Pink Power Project. This is a charitable project meant to help women in need gain access to period products.
