|Brianna, the youngest of 5 children, was blessed growing up with a loving family and supportive community. In high school she went to church, played sports and attended a local college to get a head start on her nursing degree. Brianna was unknowingly stalked and then befriended by human traffickers during her senior year, before being rescued. Feeling compelled to bring awareness to her community, she has now become an ambassador and activist with Shared Hope International, dedicating her life to eradicating and fighting domestic minor sex trafficking.|
