I believe in human rights. Since human rights violations across the globe tend to target women and children most frequently and most disparagingly, focusing on the advancement of these groups is a significant movement toward making the world a benevolent place for all human beings.
Awareness, exposure, and understanding of the rooted issues are crucial in the first steps of that process. Through Safe World, I'm able to participate in many of these conversations and ideas.
I come to Safe World from the upper Midwest region of the United States. My professional experience includes nonprofits, healthcare, communications and marketing, and community outreach. I have a master's degree in public administration, a certificate in nonprofit management, and a bachelor’s degree in English. I also serve on the board of directors for a reproductive health clinic in my community.
