About Me: 

Having been raised in Ethiopia as a child of a development worker, I gained a global outlook at a young age. After witnessing poverty and injustice in its various forms, I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world. While in university I learned about modern day slavery, and have since discovered my passion to be the fight against sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. My husband and I drove across Canada in the fall of 2009 and made a documentary about sex trafficking in Canada, and started a blog about the issue at www.hopeforthesold.com.

My Passions: 
Writing, photography, travelling (adventure-style!), learning new languages
My Challenges: 
To not fall victim to sensationalism but to discover the truth about sex trafficking and how to stop it
My Vision for the Future: 
End sex trafficking and the exploitation of women and children
My Areas of Expertise: 
Writing, politics
My Languages: 
English, Finnish, Spanish
