Gulati, 17, founded her nonprofit Girl Genius in December 2018 “to connect, inspire, and empower female change-makers in STEAM worldwide.”
“Since our start, our nonprofit has impacted over 150 high school and college girls from 40 locations and seeks to ensure females (non-binary and trans-inclusive), as well as people of color, are given a voice through our three mediums: magazine issues, blog posts, and YouTube videos,” Gulati explained.
The nonprofit recently partnered with Makers for COVID-19, an international group of about 200 people with 3D printers who are making 20,000 PPE for more than 30 hospitals each week. Gulati teamed up with Makers founder Karina Popovich, a 3D printing activist and student at Cornell University who is passionate about closing the gender gap in engineering for this endeavor.
Gulati’s Girl Genius art team designed a special COVID-19 sticker, based on artwork used in the magazine, which is being sold on Redbubble.com, with 100 percent of the proceeds going toward funding the production of PPE. Purchase a sticker here.
“Girl Genius appreciates any amount of money you can contribute towards Makers For COVID-19, and encourages you to purchase a sticker from our Redbubble shop,” Gulati said.
