K.C. Ho   

On April 4-5, 2013 K.C. Ho '15 attended the Women in the World Summit in New York City. The summit, which was hosted by Newsweek and The Daily Beast, featured panels that celebrated the accomplishments of women's rights activists from around the globe and addressed a range of issues including education, sexual violence, human trafficking, and maternal health. 

For K.C., the summit served as a reminder of the importance of maintaining awareness of the serious issues facing women around the world. In her words, "The most important thing I carry with me from the conference is that…it is about keeping it in our minds, even if we like to put things away when we face something overwhelming. As a SWGS and PJHC student, I think a lot about these overwhelming issues. But I have the luxury of putting these problems away sometimes. As for some women, these are issues that they live and breathe every day, problems that they cannot simply put away, and that is what keeps me going."
