"During that time I saw 10 to 20 men a day. I did what he said because he got violent when I sassed him. I took all kinds of drugs - even though I didn’t really like most of them. Over the years I had pimps and customers who hit me, punched me, kicked me, beat me, slashed me with a razor. I had forced unprotected sex and got pregnant three times and had two abortions. Afterward, I was back out on the street again. I have so many scars all over my body and so many injuries and so many illnesses. I have hepatitis C and stomach and back pain and a lot of psychological issues. I tried to commit suicide several times."

Here's what you need to know about human trafficking and slavery:
The United Nations defines human trafficking as the recruitment of persons, by using violence or coercion, for the purpose of exploitation.
According to the World Health Organization, Labour-related trafficking occurs in a wide range of sectors, such as agriculture, fishing, manufacturing, mining, forestry, construction, domestic servitude, cleaning and hospitality services. Trafficked people may also be forced to work as beggars or soldiers, and women and children can be made to serve as ‘wives’.
An estimated 24.9 million people are trapped in modern-day slavery. Of these, 16 million (64%) were exploited for labor, 4.8 million (19%) were sexually exploited, and 4.1 million (17%) were exploited in state-imposed forced labor.
It can be closer to home than you think. According to the Australian Homeaffairs, 247 suspected victims of human trafficking and slavery were identified domestically by Australian authorities between 2004 and 2014.
Contrary to what you might think, human trafficking is still a cause for concern and it is one of the fastest growing crimes around the world.
Human trafficking has devastating effects on women's lives.
Survivors of abuse are often left to deal with the horrifying aftermath of the violence they have suffered.
Children and women are tormented by recurrent thoughts and memories of abuse of multiple victimisations
Children and women are develop strong feelings of self-hatred and guilt.
Most rescued survivors have lost touch with family and friends, and have no source of emotional support. They feel abandoned and alone.
Children and women blame themselves for trying to run away and are burdened by feelings of shame.
Children and women have incessant self-doubt and self-criticism for not fighting their abusers and have diminished self-trust which makes them feel stuck.
People who experience such a severe form of abuse suffer from debilitating low-self esteem, lack of self-love and self-compassion, delayed psychological development and chronic diseases.
