Anja Juliah Abu Bakar is an entrepreneur who founded Blubear Holdings, enterprise that empowers young girls. When she learned that thousands of young girls in rural areas of Malaysia are missing school because of a lack of access to sanitary products, Anja embarked on a mission to teach these girls about menstrual health. Through her brand Athena, which makes eco-friendly, reusable sanitary products, she initiated a girl empowerment movement which created awareness among young girls by educating them about their bodies and their rights to a healthy hygienic living. Anja Juliah Abu Bakar is also the founder of Sisterhood Alliance, an NGO which empowers young women with life skills.
