  19. 19. Personal Connection <ul><li> I chose Prevent Human Trafficking because this past summer I spent my time in the rural villages in KamPom Thom, Cambodia seeing first hand the effects and damages human trafficking does to the lives of everyone in the country. I saw the need and support for the victims of this prevalent and cruel industry. The values of this organization such as raising awareness, and critically thinking of ways to curtail this inhumanity is something I truly believe and is a real need for a global response. </li></ul>
