Shruti Juneja: Co-President

Shruti Juneja is a sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences. She got involved with SASSY after participating in the Alternative Spring Breaks program's GEMS trip. This transformative experience really opened her eyes to the complexities and the prevalence of the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) in the United States and inspired her to get more involved. As Co-President, she is looking forward to working with her fellow e-Board members to learn more about the issue and raise awareness about it by leading a research project for an impact study for GEMS. Shruti is also involved with the Cornell Daily Sun news department, Cornell Strategic Consulting, and the Cornell International Business Association.

Ruojia Sun: Co-President

As Co-President of SASSY, she is looking forward to having discussions about CSEC with other students, particularly to challenge stereotypes surrounding the issue, and to continue working with GEMS through SASSY. Outside of SASSY, Ruojia is also involved in research on campus and dances on Cornell’s competitive ballroom team.
