BFA VOLUNTEER GOES TO MOLDOVA:
"When I was twelve, I felt like God was calling me to do something about human trafficking, I just didn’t know what. Then, about two years ago, right before the beginning of my senior year of high school, I went to a symposium at FGCU about the topic to research for my senior project about it. There, I met Julie [Shematz]. A few months later I called to ask about volunteer opportunities. It started with me helping a beautiful young girl unpack her clothing after trying to get out of the industry. Most of the time, however, I did little things like wrapping gifts and posting things on the Facebook fan page and twitter. I was very happy to see God use me in whatever way possible. As time progressed, I took on more responsibility as food coordinator and I am now in the process of organizing a fund raiser for Beauty from Ashes™. God has truly blessed this ministry and I am thankful to be a part of it."
