Nitasha is a Pakistani founder with a software engineer background. She started her career on the FIFA14 team and moved to the Bay Area 3 years ago. She started her company, Unboxd, to change the stereotypes of women in the media. She was sick and tired of being labeled as 'nerdy' and 'anti-social' because she was interested in technology. Those stereotypes didn't prevent her from pursuing her passion, but when she realized how many girls shy away from STEM careers due to those stereotypes she knew something had to change. Unboxd goes behind the scenes with women who are changing our world and shows young girls that they have what it takes to succeed in science or technology.
