Bethany Hennigh ('2015) | Politics, Philosophy, and Economics
Home State: New Jersey
Current Residence: New York
Current Employer: Nomi Network
Brief description of your current or expected responsibilities: My responsibilities have varied from product mailings to writing blogs and doing sales at events. I also helped to manage other interns and assign tasks and prepare written procedures to organize the network. My favorite part was probably getting to go to DC for intern roundtable where we heard Ambassador Luis CeBaca, along with other individuals who are actively fighting slavery in their fields.
Best part of job (if applicable): This was probably one of the most amazing things I have done with my life. I absolutely loved it, both the cause that I became apart of and the people I interacted with everyday. I got to see hope being played out as women in India were able earn money to live a normal life. Nomi Network is an anti-sex trafficking non-profit that empowers women in India and Cambodia through economic opportunity. During my time at Nomi Network, Supei Liu, the VP who works on the ground-training women in India, returned to New York for a few months. I had the privilege of hearing her speak and tell stories. Most of which were heartbreaking, but because of what Nomi was doing and because of the awesome God we serve, there was and is always hope! And as insignificant as my role in the office was, I am an abolitionist along side them.
How has King's education prepared you for this role? I felt very prepared and confident in meeting with people and speaking about what Nomi does, whether it was in casual conversation or at an event. I felt King's prepared me for speaking and interacting with people of all statuses and articulating our mission.
If you are a student, what are your plans after graduation/how this position fits into those plans? I have always been interested in Human Rights, specifically women and minority groups, but after being exposed to the harsh realities of this world and all of the injustices that occur, my heart was even more burdened and I can't imagine my life without fighting for these women in some way. Although I don't know what it will exactly look like, I would love to be on the ground working with women, hearing their stories and being able to offer them hope.
Surprising fact about yourself: I spent 18 years in Tanzania and am allergic to cockroaches.
