Introducing myself and my journal
I am 25 years old and recently graduated for my M.A. in Gender and Women's Studies of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I was adopted from Sri Lanka, was raised in The Netherlands, and now live in the United States. I have a B.A. in Communication Arts (Theater, Film and Television Studies) from the University of Utrecht in The Netherlands, have worked as a teacher at a Dutch middle and high school, and have been a teaching assistant for a university-level women's health class at UW-Madison.
I currently work as Young Women's Outreach Coordinator and Project Assistant with the Wisconsin Women's Network.
My main passions are women's human rights (including reproductive justice, gender & development, violence against women, and women's global health), outreach to young women and other marginalized groups, education, international adoption, and documentary film. I would love to get in touch with others working in these areas! Please send me a message or check my LinkedIn page if you would like more information about me: http://www.linkedin.com/in/minjontholen
