In this edition, HER portrays three women whose lives have been significantly shaped by technology. Take hip-hopper Niana Guerrero. Aged just 15, she is the most followed TikTokker in her country, the Philippines, and one of the biggest YouTube stars in Southeast Asia. Or Aulia Halimatussadiah, one of Indonesia’s most influential serial start-up entrepreneurs and founder of ‘Girls in Tech’. And then there is Molly Hunag from Taiwan who’s startup Velodah has developed an app for cyclists.
