Natalie Wartew: I am 23 years old, and I am from Buckinghamshire in the U.K (just to quash the misconceptions now – there is no relation there to Buckingham Palace, I’ve never met the Queen, and I don’t bump into Kate Middleton at the supermarket!). I just completed a 4-year BSc Human Psychology (Hons) degree, and am now free to pursue what I REALLY want to do – abolish slavery in our lifetime.

Christy Sobolik: My name is Christy Sobolik. I was born in raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and went to college at the University of Tulsa in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I just graduated in May with a B.A. in English and Spanish. I love literature, languages, and learning. I’m a big nerd—I’m obsessed with The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games. My dream is to commission the Jim Henson Company to make a Muppet avatar of me.

Diana Cannon: One week down. In some ways I feel like I’ve just barely started my journey with Not For Sale, and in other ways I feel like I’ve been with them for months. The latter feeling probably stems from the sheer amount of knowledge that I’ve been given; it seems impossible that all of that information could have fit into just five days.
