My name is Thida*, and I’m a 16 year old survivor.
I came to the SHE Rescue Home when I was 16 years old after being trafficked and exploited. I am in grade 2 and hope to continue my studies. When I’m not working or studying I love to jump rope and play basketball, and my favourite food is mixed vegetables with fish or longan berries.
My parents are divorced and I was living with my mother and my step father. My home is not safe. However my perpetrator has just been arrested and is presently in jail. I have 4 siblings and my family is quite unstable, as they do not have steady work and move around frequently.
My social workers will continue working on my case to ensure justice is served, and plan to enroll me into a sewing course and reintegrate me with my uncle once the course is complete. I dream of someday becoming a clothing designer and am excited learn the skills necessary!
