Biographical Sketch

Hello! I am a high school student who regularly makes presentations targeted at raising awareness of sex-trafficking in my, and surrounding, communities. My engaging presentations include; an introduction to the topic of sex-trafficking, examinations of all profiles involved, the warning signs of its presence, the luring and trapping of victims, and how social media is used to guarantee the trade's endurance. My talks are adaptable depending on the audience, ranging from formal presentations to casual, round-table discussions.
