Shamere McKenzie was simply trying to find a way to pay her college tuition when she met her trafficker. He seemed like a nice guy, and he promised her she could make money dancing. Instead, he forced her into sex slavery. Shamere tells the inspiring story of a woman who was able to survive a fate that is all too prevalent in the U.S.
