Being out of “the life” for 8 years – Jasmine is now using her voice and story of hope to raise awareness for women who are currently enslaved in sex trafficking situations by speaking at schools, colleges, churches and conferences. She firmly believes education about this issue can help prevent and abolish it. She has spoken on panels at the U.S Commission on Civil Rights in New Hampshire and just recently at the United Nations in New York.

While being trafficked she obtained an Associate Degree in Business Management from a community college. Two years after getting out of “the life” she became a real estate agent and rented apartments for five years. Once, Jasmine had regained some stability in her life, doors began to open for her to work within the field of anti-human trafficking. She has worked at prevention organizations as a mentor and group facilitator to at risk youth girls and has also been a passionate advocate for women at a residential safe home.

In her work with these agencies and at speaking engagements, it became clear that people are deeply impacted by hearing her testimony of survival, faith and victory. This impact has been felt by other silent survivors, as well as justice-seekers and direct service providers. Those who were previously uneducated on the issue of human trafficking have risen up to support her active work as a Modern-Day Abolitionist.
