Jennifer shares "I grew up feeling unloved and unworthy. I had deeply embedded negative thoughts and feelings that drove me to seek comfort in negative things. After loosing my virginity to a sexual assualt at 12, I began to seek comfort in drugs and older men. After a series of abusive relationships, I ended up with what I thought was someone who took care of me and truly loved me. That man quickly turned me onto iv drug use and started grooming me for a darkness I had never known existed. What started as being a dancer at local strip clubs quickly evolved into placing ads on Craigslist. Before I realized that my soul was being emptied, I found myself being raped regularly, kidnapped, held hostage, sold to gangs and branded. After 5-6 years of enslavement, including birthing my last child by myself on a strangers floor, I was able to escape. Only to be left with 4 semingly permant marks of demorilization and constant reminders of the violence I escaped. After 8 months of saving I was able to fund my first of the four cover ups of my brandings. That is when a very special person came into my life and sponsored me to have my remaining coverups done. The feeling of freedom and empowerment I felt reclaiming my body was amazing and life changing. That is when I founded Survivor's Ink. It quickly became a non-profit strictly for survivors of human trafficking who have been branded or scarred from their traffickers, abusers and time of enslavement. Not only have I been able to give this freeing gift to other survivors. I have found my strenth, myself and healing by us uniting and fighting back against human trafficking and grip of that darkness. I now have been able to try to use my story to raise money for the strongest, most amazing survivors ever! My sisters.
Michaela Floyd grew up in a very dysfunctional household. Her father was a preacher that eventually was kicked out of the church due to his alcohol abuse and was abusive to her mother. Michaela suffered through emotional, verbal and physical abuse at the hands of her father. Her mother finally left her father in Michaela’s late teens.
Dating was very difficult for Michaela because she felt that every man would be abusive but while in college she married an older man just to escape her chaotic life. Early in her marriage her husband was very controlling and for the most part she was compliant but when she wasn’t it resulted in extreme physical abuse. The abuse continued through the marriage and although Michaela never denied him sex, he began raping her in order to show his control over her.
After her husband began abusing drugs, they divorced & she moved to Nashville. After seeking employment with no luck, she finally took a job as an erotic masseuse after being assured that she would not have to do anything she didn’t want to do. She soon found out the company was owned by a prominent mafia family. She was trafficked in 11 states and 26 cities within a 3-month period. After finally being able to get back to Nashville and becoming an independent sex worker in order to support her family. But over the course of 15 months was able to rebuild a life for her family, attend counseling and eventually get out of the life.
Michaela has become active in speaking out and working with other survivors to reach out to women still trapped in trafficking and prostitution. Eventually, she would like to do this kind of work full-time, but for now God has opened many doors and she has been busy educating herself about this horrific evil. She feels very blessed to know so many survivors and to call them her sisters and friends.”
