My road in life has been direct.
She knew from a young age that she wanted to get into social justice work.
Her parents had a gallery, kept a painting of a CIA mercenary urinating on a political prisoner in their living room; had a great effect on her.
Bought one of the first consumer-grade video cameras, was determined to make a documentary that would change the world.
She'd done international human rights work, knew women's issues; these qualifications led a friend to approach her to help stop human trafficking.
Went undercover, posed as a buyer interested in buying women, documented the whole thing.
After the documentary, Bought and Sold, aired, she drafted a Congressional resolution that led to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.
Says that Americans have the privilege of freedom and the responsibility to try to ensure that freedom is afforded to others.
Thinks we're all hardwired to do something in this world; "all the seeds of whoever you are, are there-the question is just accessing it and fulfilling it."
