Committee Member

My interest in the fight against human trafficking started in my final year of university. For my fourth year Women and Crime coursework, I was assigned to the London Anti-Human Trafficking Committee and the Salvation Army. I got the opportunity to hear many victim's stories and engage with a lot of women and families that had been affected by human trafficking, as well as the social workers that were dedicated to exit programs. This opportunity was one of the most eye opening experiences of my academic life and ignited passion and interest in fighting human trafficking. This cause is important to me because I believe vulnerable people should be protected at all cost and programs and services built for this population should be made accessible and available for those in need.
