Workplace wellness - working smarter, not harder
Kyrah's story of social entrepreneurship began at nine years old. As a result of growing up in a broken home, she began experiencing severe post-traumatic stress disorder and depression in middle school. While mental illness followed her throughout adolescence, she channeled her struggle into the founding of a social enterprise called Let's Empower, Advocate, and Do (LEAD), Inc.
In 2016, Kyrah won $32,500 of seed funding in the George Washington University New Venture Competition as the only competing college female and freshman student. Since 2012, Kyrah has been featured in the New York Times and national television, and was named the nation's 3rd best student entrepreneur.
Today, Kyrah is the CEO and co-founder of LEAD, Inc. She travels the world, speaking about the impact of social entrepreneurship on trauma survivors, the importance of proactive mental health education in schools, and the idea that "while not everyone has a mental illness, everyone can improve their mental health."
