Olivia started doing street outreach in order to get extra credit in a women’s studies class. She only had to go once, but after seeing the faces behind the news stories on human trafficking, she became invested in the women and wanted to do more to help.
Olivia met a girl who hopes to major in Women’s Studies at UC one day, if she can get out of soliciting. The girl asked Olivia if she could get into school by calling the number on the outreach card she received from Olivia. Even though Olivia wants to say yes and give her hope for the future, Olivia doesn’t want to make promises she is not certain she can keep. Instead, Olivia says, “just call the number, we’ll see.”
