JUSTYNA KEDRA, FOUNDER + CEO
"Welcome! WE Rule started as a simple project at a coffee shop and it used to be just an Instagram account.
I wanted to find a way to grow my network and surround myself with successful women just like you, but I didn't want to do it in a traditional way so I decided to interview them and publish their stories on social media. Telling stories of rich and famous was never my goal. Through WE Rule I wanted to connect female entrepreneurs that have successful businesses globally, but are not on the "Top 100 Influential People on Planet Earth" list... yet! Your business needs a voice and we are here to give it to you."
RAHANA RAMPERSAD, FOUNDER AT YOUCARE FOUNDATION (NON PROFIT SUBSIDIARY OF OUR BUSINESS)
Rahana was born and raised in the Caribbean and has been a Wall Street veteran for over 14 years. She first started at WE Rule as an international contributor and recently joined the team and launched her own department- the YOUCARE FOUNDATION, which will officially launch soon! Rahana is very passionate about helping youth globally and will be helping to connect them to growth opportunities and empower them to think about the future in a bigger way.
For our first project we connected a business owner in Egypt to a foundation in Tanzania- stay tuned for the announcement. If you are a non- profit or a for-profit oraganization wanting to connect and do good, please contact Rahana.
GIFTY BLANKSON, CONTRIBUTOR
My name is Gifty Blankson, I was born and raised in Ghana, West Africa. I immigrated to America in 2009 for better educational and economic opportunities. I was raised by a single mother who instilled in me the value of hard work. I am currently pursing my degree at New York University (NYU). My passion is to help children who grow up in single parent households because I know firsthand the challenges they endure on daily basis. I found out about We Rule through America Needs You, and I fell in love with their mission since it aligns with mine. I strongly believe that if women get support to succeed in their endeavors, children will not have to struggle for basic necessities in life. Working with We Rule has been a life changing experience as it has opened my eyes to important issues globally.
ANGELA GUZMAN, CONTRIBUTOR
Hello, my name is Angela Guzman and I am currently an undergraduate student at Baruch College. Apart from being a student, I am currently a Peer mentor for first-year students as well as a Math tutor. As mentor and tutor, I am able to give back to the Baruch community. I have grown in my ability to communicate with my peers and learned more through my positions.
WE-rule was first introduced to me through America Needs You, a career development program geared towards first generation students. After reading WE Rule's mission and all the work they have done for female business women around the world, I was inspired to join on the organization. This organization has allowed women around the world have a platform to display the amazing work they have done. I am excited to be a part of the team and contribute towards the foundation.
