  • An Interview with a Kindred Spirit in the fight against modern day slavery

     

    A couple of weeks ago, I guest posted on Scoutie Girl. Near the end of the article, I wrote:

     

    “At my core, I am a dreamer. And my current dream is to harness the power of story and use it to fight modern slavery, earn a living for myself, and teach people from all walks of life how to do the same (and hopefully much more). With my blog as my main platform and words as my tools of choice, I know I have ventured down an exciting rabbit hole.”
