Rachel Sparks

Rachel grew up around film, understanding the impact it has on our culture, through the influence of her father, Jeff Sparks, President of Heartland Truly Moving Pictures. Graduating Magna Cum Laude in Business Administration and Adolescent Ministry from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2006, she moved to New York City to work with children, never imagining film or non-profit work in her future. During that time, her life forever changed when she heard that children were being sold into prostitution all over the world. No longer content to live as she had been, she began wrestling with how to get involved. The result: The SOLD Project. Rachel now serves as a board member for The SOLD Project and teaches 7th grade in downtown Los Angeles as part of Teach For America.
