May 18, 2009: Boat People SOS is excited to welcome Ngoc-Tram (Tracey) Le, the new intern working on behalf of the Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA).
Le has just arrived from Lansing, Michigan to start her internship. After three months of intense training at BPSOS national headquarters in the Washington, DC area, she will be joining the CAMSA team in Penang, Malaysia, where she will serve for nine months.
She graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in Social Science–International Studies. Prior to joining the CAMSA team, she worked in Vietnam as a project manager’s assistant for a US-based IT company. In early 2006, she was a student intern with the United Nations Environmental Program in Bangkok for six months.
She is fluent in Vietnamese and English, and speaks Thai and Mandarin.
“We are truly excited to have Ngoc-Tram tackling human trafficking issues with CAMSA and Boat People SOS,” said Dr. Nguyen Dinh Thang, BPSOS executive director. “Her skills and commitment are going to make a critical and positive difference in this work.”
