Sasha Taylor is the founder of Reality of a Desi Girl . A consultancy and advocacy agency that partners directly with the public and private sectors to help end child marriage and violence against women.
On the consultancy front, Sasha provides trainings that help institutions understand the intersectionality of ethnoreligious, historical, intergenerational, and sociopolitical trauma in immigrant and refugee populations, and how to make progressive trauma-informed policies to help diverse survivor experiences.
On the advocacy front, Sasha urges lawmakers to audit, address, and then amend antiquated laws and policies still exploiting children and women. Sasha also amplifies detached immigration policies and societal issues that fail to protect the refugee and immigrant populations in the United States.
A child marriage survivor herself, Sasha was forced into a child marriage at age 15, which set her back over 10 years in obtaining her college education. Sasha then went on to Arizona State University and obtained her Bachelor's Degree, and then received her Master's Degree from Michigan State University. Sasha worked at the FBI as an Intelligence Analyst for over 11 years, retiring from federal government service in 2021.
Sasha is 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.
