Kaitlynn Duart is an intern studying for her bachelor’s degree in Social Work at Cleveland State University. She is from a large family and is one of six sister's (three of which were adopted). She created life-long friendships with each of her sisters and their children and maintains those relationships while living in another state. She volunteered at different human trafficking prevention non-profits in North East Ohio throughout high school as a youth ambassador. She was asked to advocate at the Ohio Statehouse in front of senators on behalf of the Renee Jones Empowerment Center at the Annual Human Trafficking Prevention Summit to talk about different strategies on spreading awareness. She also organized and led the center’s Annual Teen Summit to spread awareness and safety precautions for high schoolers. After she graduated, she went on a yearlong trip and volunteered in Cambodia, Guatemala, Honduras and Ethiopia to teach English to human trafficking survivors. She had the opportunity to lead and teach with seven women who traveled with her to each country. She was also in charge of international communications and organizing daily debriefs and bonding exercises at the end of each day for the teachers.
She then moved to St. Petersburg with her husband and has been teaching at a trilingual preschool. She plans on finishing her bachelor’s degree and becoming a social worker as soon as possible. She then hopes to finish her master’s and become a therapist for children and teenagers in the foster care system.
