“Prostitution is the choice of no choices. Is it really a choice if you have financial instability, have been abused, and/or feel undesirable? If you weigh the options of a person in prostitution, there is always an underlying reason for the choice of engaging in the life of prostitution, no matter your age. Transparency is the purest form of helping others. Don’t hide from your truth; everyone is a survivor of something. You can use your story to help many. One victim is one too many.”
