Founder and Executive Director
A first year Biology and Political Science major at the University of Pittsburgh, Anushay is the Regional Director for Storybox Books, a nonprofit organization that aims to increase literacy rates and promote academic achievement. Additionally, she is a writer for Women’s Republic and the Rag, two distinct intersectional feminist blogs created to generate conversation around women’s issues. Anushay’s initiatives to improve the quality of healthcare in developing countries led her to become a symposium presenter at the 2017 Global Health and Leadership Conference at Harvard College. She strongly believes that the reproductive rights of women have been the subject of increasingly stubborn and relentless controversy and if this world wants their future daughters to receive the care that they need, they need to instill a sense of security and assurance within the healthcare system on local, national, and global scales. That starts with empowering young girls. Anushay started TreasurHER because she believes that women’s reproductive healthcare is a right, not a privilege.
Director of Communications
My name is Nabeeha Affan and I am the new Director of Communications for TreasurHER. I am currently a first year student at the University of Pittsburgh. I plan on following the premed track with a Neuroscience major as well as a minor in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies. In high school, I was an active member of my schools Key Club and volunteered for numerous events, my favorite of which was after school math tutoring of middle school children. In addition, I was also an after school elementary school ESL tutor during my senior year of high school. I hope to help TreasurHER with their mission of ending the stigma towards menstruation and women’s health. I strongly believe that in this political climate it is necessary that women especially come together and realize we are powerful enough to defeat all of the adversity and discrimination which we face. I was attracted to TreasurHER because of its mission, but also because of the fact that it is run by young people. We are the future and it is our responsibility to create a world in which we are proud to live.
