Sasha Taylor is the founder of Reality of a Desi Girl.  A survivor leader consulting and training agency.

Sasha provides lived-experience consulting and training to government agencies on countering honor-based violence (HBV), visa-based exploitation, and violence against girls. Sasha provides deep-dive trainings on the intersectionality of ethnoreligious, historical, intergenerational, and sociopolitical trauma in immigrant and refugee populations. Sasha brings a wealth of personal and professional knowledge in every consultation and training to assist institutions in their trauma-informed policies. 

Sasha also served at the FBI as an Intelligence Analyst for over 11 years in the Counterterrorism, Counterproliferation, Extraterritorial Investigations, Terrorist Use of the Internet, and Weapons of Mass Destruction portfolios. Sasha retired from federal government service in 2021.

Sasha also helps address, audit, amend, and amplify antiquated laws and gaps in U.S. immigration policies to protect minors in the U.S. and abroad.​ A child marriage survivor herself, Sasha was forced into an unwanted engagement, then into a forced legal marriage, and then a forced religious marriage -- all starting at age 15. This collective ordeal delayed Sasha's college education over 10 years. Sasha eventually received her Bachelor's Degree from Arizona State University and then went on to receive her Master's Degree from Michigan State University.

Sasha is also a member of FBI Association of Intelligence Analysts (AIA), Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security and Conflict Transformation (WCAPS) and Women in Film & Video (WIFV) DC.
