L'Oréal Paris 2021 Women of Worth Honoree

L’Oreal Paris has awarded me the prestigious honor of being a 2021 Women of Worth Honoree, an award recognizing women that are making an extraordinary difference in the world. L’Oreal Paris supports these inspiring women through grants, mentorship and by raising awareness for their causes.  I am being honored for my efforts to ensure young people avoid, not simply recover from child sexual abuse and exploitation.

As a recipient, The Starr Institute (TSI) was awarded $20,000! I'm thrilled about this amazing recognition and the grant, which is so helpful for our work.

"I believe that as we make awareness and prevention a priority and not just a reactionary response to an outcry, then we will be in a better position to protect our children and youth from child sexual abuse and exploitation."
