Shortly after arriving back into the United States, I was contacted by a group of students (comprised from various universities and high schools) who had been working on a class project to present to Cupertino’s p class=”MsoNormal”>City Hall, along with members of the community. The project was aimed at spreading awareness about the issue of human trafficking and to try to gather community support. The students heard about my experience in Malaysia through word of mouth and asked for my help. Without a moment to lose, I spent hours sharing with them my experience accompanied by photos I took and the video Dr. Thang made for BPSOS. They used this firsthand knowledge and integrated it into their presentation. On Wednesday, August 5, 2009, the group of students gave their presentation to community leaders, including the former Mayor of Cupertino, Dr. Michael Chang, De Anza College professors, and over 50 student leaders from the Asian Pacific American Leadership Institute. Their presentation was successful. In addition, they were able to get sign-ups from people who were interested in getting involved or at the very least just wanted more information regarding the issues. I was able to get a hold of the list and plan to use this as the bases for outreaching to hopefully create a Northern California CAMSA Champion Team.
