Sophia became addicted to heroine when she was 19. She found a man to star funding her needs, and she would pay him with sex in return. One night Sophia’s pimp demands for her to pleasure him and she says no. Her pimp beats her and then rapes her.
Sophia files a police report against the pimp. He is arrested and put in jail. Sophia now volunteers to help trafficked girls. She goes to schools to tell her story and to encourage girls to speak out against aggressors.
