Hello! I'm Emma, your podcast host. I grew my passion for human trafficking awareness while I was in college. An organization was hosting a week of outreach. I went to their showing of the Nefarious documentary. What I saw taught me a lot about a reality that I didn't know existed. It broke my heart.

From that point on, I knew I wanted to do my part to fight against human trafficking. It took me several years to figure out my role. My first few ideas were a bit extreme and unrealistic. I eventually began thinking about my skills and how they could translate to my mission.


I have worked for six years as a news journalist. For the past five, my career has been in broadcast journalism. I have established the skills needed to produce a podcast. Now, I'm excited to say I'm here with Freedom Rising. Thank you for joining me on this journey to learn more about human trafficking and how we can diminish the demand.
