Episode 12: Sasha Taylor, Retired Intelligence Analyst

Sasha Taylor medically retired from the FBI after serving for 11 years as an Intelligence Analyst. Sasha supported several portfolios at FBI Headquarters from counterterrorism to counterproliferation. In this episode, Sasha starts by talking to us about her early years, a very challenging episode of her life, in which she was forced into marriage as a child. Sasha shares her story, how she came out a survivor, and how she made it to the Bureau. She talks to us about what it was like to work at HQ, in different units and with different people. Sasha also shares how difficult it was to prematurely part ways with the Bureau. Sasha concludes by talking to us about how she is now an advocate against child marriage and violence against women, an effort that she effects through her consultant company Reality of a Desi Girl. Sasha's story is that of pain, of gender inequality and loss of rights, of traditions that have made their way to the United States, of suffering in silence, but most importantly of resilience and survival. This is an emotional charging episode, one that I hope educates you on the matter, and hopefully, it helps someone in need.
