Tonight's special guest is Cecibel Contreras from the Bronx, NY, an advocate for children's rights as well as a survivor of incest, child sexual abuse and human trafficking. At the age of eight years old she was first molested by her grandmother, and later by her biological father, at home, where no one could see. After five years of this she came forward to the police and her father was arrested and sentenced to 10 years. But Cecibel was placed in different foster homes in which she continued to be physically, emotionally and sexually abused. Years later she fells prey to a human trafficker (a supposed 'boyfriend') who took her to Colombia. Once there she was raped, tortured, drugged and sold to different men for 6 months. The men who would buy these services were politicians, priest, lawyers and “respected” members of our society. Cecibel was rescued and brought back to the US. Her life continued to spiral out of control with a drug and alcohol addiction. An accident left her a in coma for 4 months. That’s when her life changed. She heard the voice of God or a higher power say “You must go back and continue your unfinished mission.” She started the healing journey. She sought help, checked herself in a program and cleaned up. Started college and graduates with a MSW degree. Today Cecibel is an advocate for child abuse, child sexual abuse, human trafficking, the founder of Incest Survivors United Voices of America, and It Was Me Campaign, and author of three books, 'Rainbows in The Dark' and two children’s books, 'The Princess & The River of Truth' and 'Joseph’s Secret'.
