    I first came to AAWC in October 2012. I had recently graduated from Harvard College, where I had served as a sexual assault peer counselor, and I was working full-time at an investment bank in New York City. During my time in finance, I realized that I wanted to continue learning about ending gender-based violence, especially sex trafficking. I have since gained a diverse set of professional skills at AAWC, and I am constantly impressed by the extraordinary women and girls I meet. I had no idea what to expect when I quit my job and moved to India, but I can now say with absolute certainty that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
