Today’s guest is a shining example of what it means to chase big ideas and leave living legacies early in life: running a non-profit organization, promoting a book, and wrapping up her senior year in high school. Isha Uppalapati is the founder of A Girl’s Frontier, an organization that supports the entrepreneurial aspirations and leadership skills of girls who come from families that struggle financially. In this conversation, Isha shares how she learned to identify problems in her community that she wanted to solve, the importance of education, and the power of recognizing and encouraging passion in others. She also talks about the lessons she learned in writing the book, Her Toolbox: Learning to Be a Female Leader with Advice from Women in Power, specifically the role mentors have played in her life and why you should learn from your mistakes.
