I received a lot of support to help me overcome the trauma of what I’d experienced. It took a long time, but I moved to another town and train to become a hairdresser. A local women’s organisation supported me to take out a small loan to open my own hairdressing salon. I’m now making enough money to support myself and my children! I don’t want anybody else to go through what I did. That’s why I’ve started volunteering to raise awareness of human trafficking in my local community.
