“IT WASN’T UN­TIL I joined Her­itage Mil­len­ni­als that I learned how com­mon breast cancer is,” says 28-year- old fash­ion en­tre­pre­neur Na­dia Tjahyadikarta. “Through hear­ing sto­ries from peo­ple around me, I’ve come to un­der­stand that this is some­thing that can af­fect any woman.”

As the co-founder with Guida Arezzi of G+NA, a ready-to-wear cloth­ing line for women, Na­dia con­sid­ers it her re­spon­si­bil­ity as an en­tre­pre­neur to help raise aware­ness among young women about the risks they face. “It’s one thing for us to make money in busi­ness, but it’s even bet­ter if we can con­trib­ute as much as we can to so­ci­ety,” she says. “I want more peo­ple to draw their at­ten­tion to a cause that is af­fect­ing women ev­ery day.”

It was Na­dia’s long-stand­ing friend­ship with Ta­nia Nor­dina, co-founder of Her­itage Mil­len­ni­als that led her to join the or­gan­i­sa­tion with Guida. “I’m happy to have met fel­low en­trepreneurs from var­i­ous fields and learned from them along the way,” says Na­dia, a New York Univer­sity grad­u­ate. “I’m proud to be in­volved in this ini­tia­tive be­cause it’s im­por­tant to be so­cially re­spon­si­ble and to give back.”
