Matilda Matovu

Director of Programs

Matilda Matovu holds a Bachelor of Science degree, double majoring in Biology and Political Science from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Matilda is also a current Masters in International Relations degree candidate at Harvard University Extension School. Matilda believes that women’s empowerment is more than just giving women and girls the opportunity to engage in the world but equipping them with the tools to succeed. Creating real agency for women of color is inclusive of education, but is also founded in establishing a community to allow for everyone to rise to their fullest potential. Matilda has found her purpose in helping young women find theirs.
