10 Sex Slaves Tell Their Story of Breaking Free from Human Trafficking

3. This teen who was trafficked for three years by her own FATHER

Rebekah’s story is the one that makes you say, “WHAT?! That happened HERE?! IN AMERICA?!”

At 15 years old, her father took her on a drive.

“We showed up at one of his friends’ house and they had me go into the other room and I happened to see…they were giving my dad money for me. I didn’t know exactly what was going to happen and that’s when they all turned on me. My dad held me down and they all raped me. That was the first time I guess that my dad trafficked me.”

It went on for three years. Coerced by her father and sold for sex, Rebekah had nowhere to turn.

Thanks to an intuitive high school basketball coach though, and her intentional relationship-building, Rebekah was able to escape.

4. This Survivor who escaped sex trafficking not once, but TWICE!

Jessa grew up in a “normal” Canadian suburb, with normal people and normal life. But Jessa was not born into a normal family.

From the time she was little, she was used as a sex slave on a regular basis. As a child, she was forced to pose for pornography. As she grew up, posing turned into performing, and Jessa was no longer appearing to do sexual acts in front of a camera, she was being raped on camera.

“I was trafficked domestically in Canada, just as I was often taken to the USA and other international countries for the sole purpose of being trafficked.”

Like many of these survivors, escape came in the form of one do-gooder, who knew the signs of human trafficking and risked their lives to help those who were unable to help themselves.

Unfortunately for Jessa though, the first do-gooder was a decoy trafficker.

“She told me that she wanted to be my mom and that she has a lot of houses of girls like me and that she wanted to take care of me,” said Jessa.

She escaped sex slavery not once, but TWICE, and her story will change the way you look at modern-day slavery.

5. This teen who was saved by a flight attendant’s quick-thinking.

After getting on a plane with an older, well-dressed man before the 2016 Super Bowl, this sex slave was rescued by a hero flight attendant who was able to recognize the signs of human trafficking.

Shelia Fedrick noticed a teen with greasy blond hair on a flight from Seattle to San Francisco. She said she instinctively felt something was “off.” Acting on her gut feeling, Fredrick communicated with the girl the only way she could think of.

“I left a note in one of the bathrooms,” Fedrick said. “She wrote back on the note and said, ‘I need help.’”

The flight attendant notified the pilots of the situation, and police were waiting at the terminal when the plane landed.
