Fellow:Bianca Neme Barros
Originally from Brazil, Bianca Neme Barros is an undergraduate business student at Menlo College, double majoring in Finance and Entrepreneurship. She’s passionate about changing the issues surrounding gender gap, social justice, and the environmental crisis.
In order to help to fight the gender gap in her circle, Bianca founded the very first feminist club at Menlo College, called WILD (Womxn's Impact and Leadership Development) where she aspires to create an ecosystem for women to become innovative and impactful leaders. WILD is a new-born club, but already the second largest on campus, as they broke the record in Menlo’s history at the club fair by recruiting 120 women in 90 minutes. As a leader and catalyst for such a strong movement, Bianca fights every day to make the world a better place for women.
Recently, Bianca became one of the officers for Oaks Innovation Club, the biggest entrepreneurship club on campus, where she creates and executes impact-driven projects, such as Startup Weekend Silicon Valley and TEDxMenloCollege. Bianca was the Director of Partnerships for the very first TEDxMenloCollege, themed "This is America." Bianca and her team were able to create a self-sustaining, large-scale initiative that had no precedent at Menlo College.
Bianca is a real politics enthusiast, participating in more than 15 MUNs- (Model United Nations), the latest one being the G20 Committee, discussing the Paris Agreement. Envisioning a world where people are not stopped from anything just for constraints they were born with, is what keeps her driving.
