According to Nadya Okamoto, “My generation of change makers isn’t just looking for a seat at the table, but to flip the table and change the game.” A recent addition to Forbes 30 Under 30 list, she is a breakthrough social entrepreneur, Harvard student, Gen Z branding authority, author and member of InStyle Magazine’s “Badass 50 Women Who Are Changing the World” list, Nadya is the founder (at age 16) and executive director of PERIOD. Under her leadership, PERIOD became the largest youth-run NGO in women’s health, leading a “menstrual movement” that is determined to break down the taboos that hinder both global development and human dignity. Since 2014, PERIOD has served almost a half a million periods (and counting) by providing menstrual hygiene products to women and girls in need around the world. Nadya’s leadership has made PERIOD one of the fastest growing youth-run organizations of its kind in the U.S., with 270 campus chapters. When not leading PERIOD, Nadya is also the Chief Brand Officer for JUV Consulting, a marketing agency that employs and empowers hundreds of Gen Zers around the world. In this role, she works with influential brands to more authentically engage with a generation that now comprises 26% of the world’s population and 46% of the total media audience.
Jerry Holl is a two-time award-winning author, professional speaker, independent business consultant, and weekend warrior. He holds an engineering degree, an MBA, and has over three decades of sales and leadership experience. Jerry resides in Minnesota with his wife and has three grown children.
In Downhills Don’t Come Free: One Man’s Bike Ride from Alaska to Mexico, Holl chronicles his anesthesized daily corporate routine and his fear of what he calls “this living death.” Having read every adventure story ever written, he wondered how he’d measure up if he embarked on his own adventure. His subsequent fifty-one-day journey from Anchorage, Alaska, to the Mexican border was replete with bad weather, flat tires, hair-raising roadways, and unpredictable grizzly bears. Holl notes that only a fool would have kept going.
