How long have you been a supporter of Childhood?

I have been a supporter of Childhood's since 2012 when a friend introduced me to this amazing organization and a proud board member since 2015. 

Why did you choose Childhood?

I have always been impressed by Childhood's work and highly supportive of its mission to stop the sexual abuse of children. Once I had children of my own and I wanted to be more actively involved in an organization focused on children's well-being. When I was asked to join Childhood USA’s Board it was the perfect choice.

Childhood USA's Co-hosted High-Level meeting, "Children and the Sustainable Development Goals: Giving Every Child a Chance"

During my first week as a Childhood USA Board Member, I attended Childhood USA’s High-Level meeting at the United Nations and felt amazed and proud of Childhood’s ability to keep decision making bodies and key global institutions focused on preventing the sexual abuse of children. I’m looking forward to many more memorable moments going forward!

What are your wishes for Childhood in 2016?

I wish Childhood will be able to scale up its fantastic work and let more of the world's children experience a safe childhood.
