We sat down with San Francisco-based lawyer and entrepreneur Meena Harris to find out more about the Phenomenal Women Action Campaign, a female-powered organization that she founded in 2017 to bring awareness to social causes. On June 2, 2020, Meena will publish her first book, a children’s book from HarperCollins entitled Kamala and Maya's Big Idea, which is based on a true story from the childhood of Meena’s mother and aunt. Here, she shares her personal journey, what being bold means to her, and of course, how Birdies help her feel bold, bright, and confident.
What is your definition of bold and how do you incorporate this into your day-to-day?
Using your voice unapologetically. I speak up, and I teach my girls to do the same.
What’s a bold move you’ve made in your life?
Having kids back-to-back while starting a business.
Who or what inspires you to be bold?
All of the incredible women and female founders in my life who are chasing their dreams, no matter what or who tries to get in their way.
What advice would you give future generations of women to live boldly and with purpose?
Don’t worry about what other people think. Follow your purpose and be bold on your own terms.
How do Birdies make you feel bright, bold, and confident?
Making a statement, especially in cheetah print, always inspires confidence.
Meena is part of our new “Bright. Bold. Birdies.” campaign, featuring and celebrating women who embody what it means to be bold inside and out. In this series, they share their stories of success and how Birdies help them soar.
