Jenifer B. McKim profiles Asia Graves, a former child prostitute who put her pimps behind bars by bravely testifying at their trial. She now works for FAIR Girls, an anti-trafficking organization, mentoring other young victims.
As part of her work, she recounts the tale of her harrowing past and inspiring turnaround to government leaders, law enforcement officials, and media outlets. Most importantly, she tries to connect with girls who are susceptible to prostitution, or have already been dragged into the sex industry underworld.
Even my 90%-stone heart warmed a little at this story.
