Lu Simon

Advisor

An impact consultant with experience in strategic planning, and management consultant in the realm of philanthropy.

1 in 10 children are sexually abused by the time they are 18 years old, and the effects last long into adulthood, affecting every part of a survivors’ life. To me, this project means providing survivors with tools, bringing the conversation out in the open, taking away the stigmas and shame, and begin the healing.
