Two New Interns At Saheli this Fall




Fall is an exciting time at Saheli. New interns join us, some for one semester, and others for two, and some for a longer. They bring fresh ideas and a lot of energy and enthusiasm to this difficult work. This year we welcome two interns to help improve our domestic violence and legal assistance areas of work.

Christine Francis is a senior undergraduate student, majoring in Psychology with minors in diversity inclusion and human rights. She is dedicated to female empowerment and the issue of domestic violence particularly in the South Asian community. She enjoys the outdoors, running and playing soccer, spending time with family and friends, and is currently training in an ancient South Indian classical dance form called Bharatanatyam. Christine is in the office on Mondays and Wednesdays.


Zaihra Ahmed is from Lexington, MA and is a second year law student at Suffolk University with an international law concentration. She was appointed as an intern with funding from the Harry H. Dow Memorial Legal Scholarship and will accompany South Asian women to court and police departments. Her interests are in international and human rights. She hopes to pursue a career in human rights after she graduates in May 2018. Zaihra is in court during weekdays on an as needed basis and in the office on Fridays.
