Students Share First Place in MIIS Anti-Human Trafficking Essay Contest
May 10, 2010
Monterey Institute students Shauna Kelly (MAIPS ’10) and Melissa Booth (MAIPS ’10) are co-winners of the 2010 Reverend Sloane Coffin Anti-Human Trafficking Essay Contest and will each receive a $750 prize contributed by Dr. Peter Grothe.
Shauna Kelly’s essay is titled “The Empowerment of Women is a Prerequisite for Mitigating Human Trafficking” and draws on her experience in Sierra Leone last January for Professor Puspha Iyer's J-term course Challenges to Peacebuilding. Ms. Kelly has focused on the fight against human trafficking in her studies at the Monterey Institute, where she has written a number of reports on different aspects of this growing global problem.
Melissa Booth’s essay is titled "Out of the Darkness and Into the Light: Initiation into and Exploration of the Human Trafficking Movement." She says she realized she wanted to be part of the anti-trafficking movement when she was participating in Professor Iyer’s class in Cambodia.
