I’m Ailsa Sachdev, the new Communications Intern at Breakthrough. I recently graduated from Mount Holyoke College with an English major and Journalism minor. I’ve worked as an editorial intern at Passport Magazine and Sierra, Sierra Club’s magazine. I’ve also written for Uloop and have had three articles reposted on Huffington Post College. I just came back from studying abroad in Morocco, where I reported on how Moroccan women go to ‘witches’ for advice on love. I love food and travel, and can say “I’m hungry” in over ten languages.
