President AnnaLynne McCord
"I joined the fight to end modern-day slavery 8 years ago hoping to rescue those in dire need. At the time, while others would say I was blossoming into a "successful" actress, I was, in fact, deeply unhappy in my private life. Two years ago, I admitted the dark reasons, for my unhappiness in a cosmopolitan magazine tell-all article, describing years of brokenness due to abuse and rape. As it turns out, those I was seeking to save ended up rescuing me. Today, I am proud to say that I'm okay. I am excited to announce that I have taken over as President of together1heart; the newly renamed fiscal sponsor for the ground team working in Cambodia seeking to empower survivors and those vulnerable to human trafficking and sex-slavery with whom I've been working for almost a decade.
It is my aim and our absolute mission to fight this atrocity in an unique fashion which steps beyond 'treating the symptoms.'"

I I don’t feel like I can change the world, I don’t even try. I only want to change the small life that I see standing in front of me which is suffering.
