Shraddha Shrestha
Age: 20
Impact Project: Connect Elderly Women with Technology

Shraddha Shrestha’s idea is to connect elderly women with technology by teaching them to use mobile phones and social networking sites to connect with their family and friends.

How do you define empowerment?
With great power comes great responsibility. Empowerment to me is when you have the power of freedom and strength, and you use that power not over others but for others and of course for your own self.

What would you change about our society so that more women can lead empowered lives?
The stereotypical gender roles are what I would love to change about our society so that more women can lead empowered lives. When no woman is judged or perceived on the basis of only her gender but as a person then great things can happen.
