    #TellUsTigers #InternationalWomensDay: ""This past summer, I had the pleasure & privilege of interning with Aidha, a Singaporean nonprofit providing financial education to foreign domestic workers. Run for & by women, Aidha exudes spirit. As you can tell from this picture, its community of volunteers, staff & students may actually wear more orange than we do at #PrincetonU. Aidha helps its students develop the skills to save, invest and/or start a business back home empowering women to transform their lives & home communities. I believe there is something especially powerful about bringing women together in support, solidarity & collaboration. Classes are held on Sundays, often the only day off per week for the students, most of whom left their homes & families to pursue work opportunities in #Singapore. Despite their own immensely long work hours, students frequently arrived early & stayed late, bringing to class not only learning materials but also food to share & selfie-sticks to document the friendships cultivated at Aidha. As part of @PrincetonOIP''s International Internship Program, I had the opportunity to document & celebrate their achievements. Most meaningful was my convo with one #Aidha graduate & volunteer on the morning of her return to the Philippines to her home, friends, family & the multiple businesses she started at Aidha & managed from afar after 20 yrs in Singapore. ''Because of Aidha,'' she told me, holding back tears, ''I have to leave Aidha.'' This emotional exchange epitomizes Aidha''s mission & my experience there. Its small office in Singapore''s Arab Quarter was shared by an all-women staff from Malaysia, China, the Netherlands, England, Canada, India & the US. As our nationalities differed, so too did our religious upbringings, sexuality, age, marital status & education. Far from divisive, these difference gave rise to lively lunch discussions. Squished around a small conference table, we luxuriated in long conversations about everything from the strangeness of American lunchmeats to the intersections of racism & sexism in the various countries & cultures from which we each hailed."" @EmilyKraeck, Class of 2017 #Princetagram #IWD
