Interview with Enlighten Me Podcast
"This conversation was not my favourite because it was a fun topic. It was a hard topic, actually, and an uncomfortable one. Many of us talk about the effects that slavery has had on our society, but we talk about it like slavery no longer exists. That’s far from the truth. In fact, there are more people enslaved today than have ever been before. Sexual exploitation is one of these cruel forms of human bondage, and that’s what Naomi is working towards bringing to an end. With her small business making adorable jewelry, she donates half of her proceeds to various organizations that are fighting human trafficking.
While this interview centers on a sensitive topic that you might not want little ears to listen to, Naomi will share why it’s still one that we need to educate our kids on. The average age for a person to be captured into sex slavery is 13. Did you catch that? 13 years young! Educating our children can potentially protect them from ever running the risk of being exploited. You might be thinking that this would never happen to your own child, but in this interview you will hear how something so tragic can happen to a seemingly “normal” kid, and how this is currently taking place in our very own cities."
