My name is Cara Leigh and I am a rising senior, majoring in Public Policy, interning at the New Orleans Child Advocacy Center and the Audrey Hepburn CARE Center. As an intern with NOCAC, I help with projects related to child abuse. Some of my projects involve helping with research on child trafficking, or compiling mental health resources for all Louisiana parishes. Some things I love about New Orleans are the Spanish moss on the trees, and, of course, the baby alligators!
