co-founder & executive director
Co-founded in 2014, beGirl.world (bGw) is a Philadelphia non-profit organization empowering teen girls through global education and travel. bGw challenges girls to think beyond their neighborhood, dream bigger than their city limits, and create possibilities outside their country borders. Since it's conception, bGw provided passports, organized several domestic trips and orchestrated an European excursion to London and Paris for a dozen Philly teen girls.
Deesha became the Executive Director in February 2017. Along with the fellow co-founders, she will oversee the daily operations of the organization, implementation of the new class, educational and interactive projects as well as the next international teen trip planned for 2019.
