Anna, a student studying Fraud Examination and Financial Forensics with the goal of becoming a forensic accountant, wishes to take her knowledge and expertise to organizations like Her Justice. Her Justice provides free legal help to women living in poverty in NYC and aided Anna and her children when she had sought safety from her past partner who was both verbally and financially abusive. As head of her household, the Education Fund Award will support Anna as she completes an internship with UN Women.

“Although it has been my goal to work in Fraud examination for many years it is especially exciting to me that this is a valuable service that I can provide to the women seeking help from ‘Her Justice’. I will be able to use my learning to provide something of value to an organization that gave me a fresh start when I was in such desperate need.”
