World Pulse – Sophie NgassaSophie Ngassa

Ms. Ngassa has been actively involved with World Pulse for almost five years, and has written many posts for the site. Notably, as the horrific conflict has increased in Cameroon, Ms. Ngassa has been a fearless leader working to unify Anglophone and Francophone women in Cameroon through a shared vision for peace through digital storytelling. Despite unthinkable danger, Ms. Ngassa was able to safely unite more than 200 women in a shared campaign calling for peace during this year’s International Women’s Day.

She is leading a “Digitally Empower Girls in STEM” campaign, where she plans to impact 2,000 girls in the next 2 years.  In 2010 she created the Center for Youth Education and Economic Development, where she run programs to train and mentor girls in basic programming and other digital skills. She also serves as a World Pulse “Ambassador”, and has been selected as a “Featured Changemaker”, which is an honor that is awarded through a selection process to active members who are spearheading campaigns that are making an impact on their communities and the world.
