Tammy Tibbetts

Tammy Tibbetts oversees business strategy, communications & PR, development, and brand partnerships for She's the First, a nonprofit that provides scholarships to girls in low-income countries with the goal of creating first-generation graduates and our next generation of global leaders.

At 23, Tammy had the idea for She’s the First. She shared it with a fellow NYWICI Scholar, Christen Brandt. On November 1, 2009, they launched it as a YouTube video. That one video became a movement that now reaches millions and has sponsored more than 2,214 years of girls’ education for 804 STF Scholars in 11 countries. She's the First also has 225+ chapters at high schools and universities across the U.S. 

Previously, Tammy worked for Hearst Magazines, where she founded three profitable digital properties for Seventeen.com and became the first social media editor of Seventeen.

Tammy is a first-generation college graduate of The College of New Jersey. She's a proud alumna of the NYWICI Scholarship program!
