Rose was kidnapped off a city street by two men. One pushed Rose in the car and punched her in the face. He would later become her pimp. Rose’s life quickly spiraled into a nightmare of exploitation, rape and servitude. Rose wanted to fight back, but he threatened to kill her family. He reminded her that he knew her address – and what her little sister looked like.

But she is learning how to heal – slowly but surely.
