Savannah was six years old the first time she had intercourse. She was raped by a family member. As a teen, there was depression, attempted suicide, abusive relationships.

How could life get worse?

It did.

At 16, she became part of our growing sex-trafficking industry when she was sold to a pimp. Savannah was a sexual hostage for eight months. She escaped only to become addicted to drugs because of her feelings of unworthiness. Are you looking for a happy ending to this dreadful story? There is one. There's a loving husband, there are four children and a graduate degree. This is Savannah, who will answer the question, "What's it like to be a victim of sex trafficking?"
