The 19-year-old actress and producer is partnering with Tampax for its “A Better Way to Period” campaign to “break through misinformation” about menstruation

Just talking about period health is very essential, which is why I wanted to join with Tampax,” Martin exclusively tells PEOPLE. “I knew before I started talking openly about my period journey that it could make me insecure because I’m a young Black girl and I have to go set or do these vacations or just basically live my life.”

“I am grateful enough to have a platform where I can use my voice and work with amazing people like Tampax to spread the narrative and change and break boundaries to be able to have openly expressive conversations like this,” the Littlestar adds. “I know for me it was hard in the beginning, but now, I’m truly, truly grateful with the journey.”

Tampax’s campaign aims to provide “medically accurate period and tampon education” to women and girls nationwide. It is in collaboration with Dr. Nicole Sparks, OB/GYN, and collegiate basketball champions Angel Reese and Flau’jae Johnson. A news statement states that the ad intends to correct misunderstandings about period goods like tampons.
