Christina Arnold  - Founder/Board President - Driven by her upbringing in South and Southeast Asia where she encountered exploited children daily, Christina Arnold has worked passionately for human rights since she moved to the U.S. at age 21.  Christina founded Prevent Human Trafficking - PHT (previously known as Project Hope International) in 1999, as a vehicle to support a handful of innovative human rights organizations working in Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. Since then, she has represented its grantees in many contexts and evaluated more than one hundred organizations and projects in the region to determine impact and sustainability, focusing on reliable, well-managed programs with committed, results-oriented leadership. Her expertise has contributed to policy and legislative change, such as the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. Christina is a Harry S. Truman Scholar and Jack Kent Cooke Scholar. She holds her B.A. in political science with honors from American University where she also completed a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) with a focus on non-profit management and social entrepreneurship while she was a Presidential Scholar-in-Residence. Christina is thrilled to build on this foundation as an NYU Reynolds 2010 Fellow in Social Entrepreneurship
