Her aim is to eradicate period poverty in the UK, and globally, and to destigmatise menstruation. After leading a peaceful protest outside Downing Street, attended by over 2,000 people, Amika successfully persuaded the UK Government to pledge funds to tackle period poverty. She has since launched a legal campaign to allow equal access to education for all.
Amika is currently at Cambridge University. She is listed in TIME magazine as one the 25 most influential teenagers in 2018, and won the Goalkeepers award for #FreePeriods from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
