Aylin is ecstatic to be working with Miss CEO to support and advance our next generation of women in leadership and innovation. Her passion for empowering young women stemmed from having an all-girls education in middle and high school, where she saw firsthand the importance of fostering leadership skills and self-confidence for young women at an early age.
Aylin is a lawyer at Stripe, an online payments company that provides tools for building and running an internet business. She previously co-founded Vinkind, a boutique wine delivery service in San Francisco. Prior to taking the leap into the startup world, Aylin was a corporate attorney at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, where she focused her practice on emerging growth and clean-tech companies.
Throughout her legal career, Aylin also devoted her time to extensive pro bono projects for non-profit organizations such as Lawyers without Borders and the Public Interest Law and Policy Group. She is passionate about the rights of women internationally and is proud to be active in global women’s issues through the U.S. National Committee for UN Women, where she previously served on the Board for two years.
She’s an avid foodie and certified sommelier, spending most of her free time painting, cooking or wine tasting with family and friends. Aylin received her J.D. from UC Berkeley School of Law and her B.A. in Women’s Studies and Political Science from UCLA.
