Letter from a young person we support
If I could say anything to anyone who is a victim of sexual exploitation I would say that when you put a ‘welcome’ mat in the front of your house, no one blames you for being robbed, so there’s no point blaming yourself for what you wear or who you hang around with. None of these reasons are acceptable enough to be subjected to such wreckage.
Anyone can be a Prince Charming, but anyone can also be a sexual offender and a child exploiter – it’s just the signs of an offender isn’t as obvious as a Prince Charming.
Prince Charming can be in disguise for someone that will take your trust and take your innocence and use it to their advantage, and they won’t return it.
The only way to survive a situation like this is to save yourself or remain unsaved.
Everything that’s happened to me has left a scar, it’s not visible and it’s not irreversible, I just wish so much that I could have seen these people for what they really were and saved myself before it was too late.
