My Dreams For The Future
Everyday a young girl, female teenager, or young woman is enslaved in human trafficking; sexual, physical, emotional, and/or verbal abuse, and promiscuity. Unappreciated and stuck in this cycle of shame, hardly able to escape, they live in a world where everything that can go wrong does go wrong. People they thought were their friends betray them for greed, power, and selfishness; parents don’t care, or, simply, don’t know, what becomes of their daughters. As a result, low self-esteem and depression set in. Soon they believe there is nothing worth fighting for, because the hurt and shame run so deep. So enters complacency. Many confide their sorrows in drugs and alcohol. And so the machine grinds on, heedless of anyone or anything that stands in its way. Yet, even with all the beating and wiping of this system, deep inside every one of these females has a keen desire to be free, and I want to be one of the people that steps in to break the circle of relentless antagonism.
I am attending college and plan on graduating with a certificate in Fashion and Design with the intent of designing and selling modest, fashionable women’s apparel. I, also, want to use this experience to teach these young women a skill, thereby, giving them a different means of support, and embedding some confidence in them as people. My dream is to see imprisoned women walking free and filled with the love of Jesus.
