Our speaker on October 19th was Katrina Massey
Having been exploited in the commercial sex industry as a teenager in Atlanta and New York City, Katrina impacts the lives of youth and young adults affected by sex trafficking still trapped in “the life” or those who struggle with its after-effects.
Katrina is a New York City Real Estate Agent, ECPAT-USA Board Member, and ECPAT-USA Survivor Council Member. Appearing regularly as a speaker and panelist, Katrina participates in conferences, workshops, training seminars, and other awareness events. Courageously, she has shared her story with the Washington Times, CNN, MTV-U, and ECPAT-USA’s “What Have I Been Through Is Not Who I Am”. More recently, she has appeared in the National MTAS (More Than a Survivor) Campaign which displays the lives of survivor’s leaders across the country.
In her previous roles as a Restaurateur and Executive Director of GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services), Katrina has used her experience and expertise to create opportunities for survivors, giving them a reflection of the possibilities beyond their trauma.
Katrina believes in life after “the life” and continues to inspire through her own experience and through the lives of young women she’s mentored over the years.
