In high school I wrote a research paper on sex trafficking in the US, and my perspective on life completely changed. The estimates that there are 100,000 children enslaved in the sex trade in the US each year. How could I go on living this privileged life when there were hundreds of thousands of girls, just like me, who were enslaved? Ever since, I have had a burning desire to learn as much as I can and to do whatever possible to bring awareness and justice to the oppression of women. This has lead to an internship with the , the conference in Istanbul, Turkey, and now to the Half the Sky ambassadorship. I intend to keep going.
