I had just escaped from being trafficked and was attending my first college class when I came across Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote, “Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility.” Since I was experiencing physical and intellectual freedom for the first time in my life, this quote left me spellbound. If Roosevelt was correct, the freedom I was now experiencing was not mine to enjoy alone; instead, my new freedom gave me the sole responsibility to pour back into society and into other individuals who have experienced crime and severe trauma. 

As a human trafficking survivor, consultant, author, and speaker, I see it as my responsibility to walk alongside anti-trafficking organizations and individuals who are wondering what they can do about this nefarious evil, as well as advocate and bring hope to other survivors of crime and trauma.
