Recent Caldwell University graduate Christine Millien and current student Avilasha Joshi presented at the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking program “Breaking Free: Students Against Trafficking” Friday, Jan. 11 as part of their internships with the coalition.
Millien, of Montclair, N.J., who received her bachelor’s in business administration, and Joshi, who is in the bachelor’s in sociology program, were chosen for the very selective winter internship program.
They handled a number of duties including creating content, contacting speakers, designing the set and promoting and presenting at the conference.
Joshi, an international student from Nepal, was happy to be a part of “a noble cause,” to meet inspiring personalities, and to experience the diverse group dynamics. “This internship is surely a start to something much bigger,” she said.
Millien said joining the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking was the “single greatest decision” she has ever made. Having the opportunity to motivate others through the media and the live conference showed her that “when united, the doors of possibilities are unlimited.”
Millien will be remaining with the coalition to speak at events and she plans to attend an advocacy day in Trenton. “I am here to change the world, starting by ending modern day slavery.”
