A survivor of childhood sexual abuse, Jaimee Johnson was sexually trafficked and under the control of a pimp for six years as a young adult, who capitalized on her vulnerability and lack of awareness about prostitution to sexually exploit her. Ms. Johnson wants to empower women to discover their dreams without the undue influence of a man or the media, and to remember that no young girl dreams of growing up to be a porn star or prostitute. She is now a survivor advocate and works with first responders.
“Back then, I lived in captivity. Today, I stand in freedom. I want to use my freedom to empower and move others held in the same captivity to their own freedom. Self-love and empowerment does not come through men buying your body.”
