Ep 14. Audrey Pe on Starting Witech at age 15, Public Speaking as an Introvert, and Making your own Opportunities

"I believe that in order to get really good opportunities you shouldn't wait for them to come to you, you should make them for yourself." - Audrey Pe

Audrey Pe (@audreyisabelpe) is an incoming freshman at Stanford University and the founder and executive director of WiTech (@witechorg) -- a nonprofit organization based in the Philippines that aims to educate, inspire, and empower youth to break gender barriers and use tech to make a difference in society.

Through WiTech, she has been working on projects at the intersection of technology and education since she launched the organization at age 15. She is now 19 and finishing up the remainder of her gap year. In quarantine, her time has mostly been spent going on partnership calls, speaking at webinars, and coordinating with WiTech’s 11+ chapters in 4+ countries on how to break the gender and accessibility gaps in tech.

Her work with WiTech has garnered her recognition as a 2019 Global Teen Leader, 2020 Pinterest Council of Courage member, 2018 Zonta Young Women in Public Affairs District awardee, 2019 Zonta Women in Technology Asia-Pacific District Scholar, Opportunity Desk 30 Under 30 Changemaker, 2020 Women in IT Advocate of the Year Finalist, and 2019 Women in Tech Global Aspiring Teen Award Finalist. A two-time TEDx, ASEAN and UN speaker, she has delivered over 30+ talks and has also been featured in local and international publications like Forbes, Esquire, and Elite Daily.

In this conversation, we talk about starting Witech, how she pivoted her blog to become a community organization, securing partnerships with brands like Accenture to host events, experience speaking to thousands of attendees at tech conferences as an introvert, learning from failure, turning inspiration into action, recruiting for student organizations, forming a team, recommended books, and much more!
