TEDxMacquarieUniversity - Stephanie Lorenzo - The Life is Love

Stephanie Lorenzo is the Founder and CEO of Project Futures Ltd, an organisation run by passionate campaigners with the aim to empower and engage our generation in raising awareness and funding to combat sex trafficking globally. Stephanie began Project Futures two years ago after reading the heart-wrenching auto-biography by Somaly Mam, a Cambodian woman sold into prostitution as a child. She believed Project Futures could become an outlet for young people to give back in time, skills and talents by leveraging their social calendar and profession in order to raise awareness for this cause and have fun while doing it, ensuring that charity is an active, fun and collaborative part of everyday social interaction. Stephanie has a Bachelor of International Communication from Macquarie University and believe it or not, never had a desire to work in the charity sector. She is an eternal optimist, believing that the good in people and a simple attitude or outlook shift might one day allow a society as lucky as Australia to live simply so that others can simply live.About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
