“After my sexual assault, I felt more in tune to how hard it would be to heal from trauma for victims who are not supported, protected and encouraged. It was during this time that I became more aware of the issue of human sex trafficking and it broke my heart to think of how helpless those victims must feel being sexually assaulted over and over again with no hope of being rescued and restored. Every time I look at this award I will think of everyone who supported me and all the people that God is now calling me to support.”
