Read about why Yasmin Fallahkhair joined the Becky’s Fund team!May 29, 2013
My name is Yasmin Fallahkhair and I am currently a senior, Government and Politics major at the University of Maryland, College Park. Originally from Potomac, Maryland I have always had an interest in public policy and advocacy. Growing up so close to Washington DC, I knew that I would want to work in the capital to gain experience and understanding of the causes that different organizations are working on and the policies that are being made to address these issues. My goal is to continue my education and receive my masters degree in Public Policy so that I may continue to reach out and provide assistance to those in need.
While interning at Becky’s Fund, I am interested in learning more about domestic violence and the methods of reaching out to help victims of abuse. Unfortunately, domestic violence is a rising issue in society today, however, due to organizations such as Becky’s Fund more and more women are seeking support and overcoming the abuse they are faced with. As an intern at Becky’s Fund, I am passionate about helping those who are unable to help themselves and look forward to promoting awareness of domestic violence and creating support for victims of abuse.
