She used to love education decided to join Southern Methodist University which is located in Dallas, Texas to advance her studies. She majored in International Studies and had been doing very well in her academia since she joined lower primary.
Whitney Wolfe after joining the campus decided to do the unthinkable while still in school. She moved to BP oil spill in the year 2010 where she decided to help the people affected. She raised funds to help in the designing of bamboo tote bags while she was still in school.

The nongovernmental organization was called Help Us Project whereby people helped in helping the people who had been affected by the disaster. She later graduated and left for South East Asia where she was to work in the orphanages but her desire to make the human’s life easier was still in her mind.
Whitney later went back home but had always had a passion for making something that had an impact. She wanted her efforts to be felt, and that was only through technology which has brought so many changes. At only 22 years old, she got a job at Hatch Labs which happened to be a start up incubator. She had no expertise in technology even an iota of coding but was a great marketing expert. Firstly, she worked on a project known as Cardify which was being led by the famous Sean Rad. Later they abandoned the project, and he moved on to the next one whereby he brought Wolfe on board.
That is when they created the most popular dating app called Tinder. It involved Justin Mateen and Rad, and also the efforts of Whitney were realized. She became a co-founder and took on the responsibilities of marketing the app. Within a very short time, the company was incredibly very successful and doing very well.
