Chantelle Baxter is the co-founder and Chief Inspiration Officer at One Girl – an organisation dedicated to giving 1 million girls across Africa access to education by 2020. Chantelle has been recognised as one of Mamamia's Most Clickable Women (2013), Cosmopolitan Magazines 30 Influential Aussie Women Under 30 and Melbourne's Top 100 Most Influential People (The Age).
