Students for Economic Justice 2014 Fellowship
Eunice Ho is a rising senior at UCSD double majoring in Ethnic Studies and Sociology. Her first exposure to Ethnic Studies as an unsuspecting sophomore drastically changed her life trajectory from a lukewarm pursuit of medicine to an impassioned pursuit of social justice. After being involved in anti-human trafficking campaigns with International Justice Mission at UCSD, a particularly pivotal class about the prison industrial complex launched her career as a student activist in Students Against Mass Incarceration UCSD (SAMI). In the summer of 2013, she also had the privilege of serving sexually exploited women in the streets of Tenderloin, San Francisco as an intern with Because Justice Matters. Afterwards, she joined Barrio Logan College Institute as a tutor for middle school students in the neighborhood. Her exposure to various issues and city environments has made her even more invested in activism and as a practicing Christian, she is ecstatic to be working on a human trafficking campaign with the Interfaith Center for Worker Justice this summer through SEJ. In her free time she can be found in stirring conversation with good company, consumed in a book, taking photos with her beloved Sony camera, or bouldering at local gyms.
