Subajini Jayasekaran: Virtual Travel Through the Eyes of Locals
Suba: Nyaanum is a digital content company focused on exploration, culture, and virtual travel. What makes Nyaanum unique is that our content is created and curated by the people who live in the places we visit—as opposed to professional photographers or foreign travelers. We create the space for communities to tell their own stories about their homes—what makes this place special to them—but also stories that highlight what is shared across cultures. There is a strong focus on empowering less heard, more marginalized voices, bringing a diversity of perspective and experience. We want to become the premier company to experience the world virtually in an inclusive and respectful way by and for everyone on the planet.

Taylor Quinn: Combatting Poverty with Nutritious, Culturally Relevant Food

Taylor Quinn: Combatting Poverty with Nutritious, Culturally Relevant Food
Taylor: The current way the world tackles malnutrition is not okay. I have been obsessed with providing nutritious low-cost food that is accessible to families living in extreme poverty. This work is especially urgent today because the rise of processed food in developing countries is creating a new reality—obesity and diabetes alongside chronic malnutrition—a double burden of malnutrition. The international development community collectively believes there is no business model for selling nutritious food to the poor. I have seen it work, though, and at the same time, I have so many close friends who have suffered the ravaging effects of malnutrition on their bodies and minds. For me, my work with Tailored Food is not a "career" or a "job" but a deep passion.
