Why I Made This Website

"After my time as a trafficking victim, I want to try to use my experience to help people to find the right services should they be unfortunate enough to be in a trafficking or modern-day slave situation.

I would also like to help people understand how traffickers obtain their victims and the signs that could indicate if you are in the presence of a modern-day slave.

It's important people understand how difficult it is to integrate into their new surroundings once free from their captors. 

Things like getting a job or finding housing. Or being able to reach their families with no contact information or language barriers.

I love what I do, I just want my story to help as many people as possible."
