TRIGGER WARNING: Graphic descriptions of sex trafficking, abuse, and attempted suicide are discussed during this conversation. Listener discretion is advised.

Coco Berthmann is a Child Trafficking Survivor, Counter Trafficking Specialist, Author, Activist, TED Speaker & Self Healer. Her vision is to end Human Trafficking through higher education and letting survivors know they are believed, loved, and valued.

It is an absolute honour to share this very important conversation with you. When I first learned about Coco's story, I was completely inspired and knew I had to have her on the podcast to share her experience. Coco courageously escaped a life of sex trafficking in Germany after 15 years of trauma. She was trafficked by her own family and didn't even realize it was wrong... it was her "normal". Coco shares the misconceptions around sex trafficking, trauma healing, breaking vicious cycles of violence, abuse and more. I am in complete awe of Coco’s humaneness, resiliency, generosity, and lightness. If this conversation inspires you, please share it far and wide, and learn more about Coco's mission below.
