Chella Quint is a Brooklyn-born, Sheffield-based designer, writer, educator, and performer. She studied dramatic writing at NYU Tisch before moving to Sheffield and completing a PGCE at Bretton Hall in Drama education. A former drama teacher and head of PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics Education), Chella coined the phrase ‘period positive’ in 2006 and founded #periodpositive to use humour and joy to challenge menstrual taboos and find long-term solutions to period poverty. In 2019, she launched the Period Positive Pledge as a framework for developing menstruation-inclusive policy and outreach. She is currently researching a PhD in Design and Health focusing on the future of menopause at Lab4Living as part of the 100 Year Life Project at Sheffield Hallam University.
