I have to get my fingerprints taken and I really am not looking forward to it. The firm that is working on vacating the criminal record I got as a minor while I was trafficked in New York sent me the forms and I have to have the fingerprints taken before our meeting on Wednesday, today is Monday. Obviously I have been putting it off. I guess it just brings back too many memories, plus parking is a bitch at the courthouse. I am interested in seeing what the fingerprints bring up though. The firm, Cleary and Gottlieb has really been great, they are the firm here in D.C. that the Advocacy Project turned my case over to because I am not living in the New York area now. I will be meeting them all for the first time on Wednesday morning when I will go over details of how they will be vacating all the convictions I got when I was picked up on the streets of New York when I was a minor and charged with prostitution. In case you think that because you were a minor the cases get erased or something, think again. They don't, they stay on your record and haunt you for the rest of your life. Unless of course you discover like I did that a fairly new law was passed making it possible for your record to be vacated. So if you got a record as a minor and you were being trafficked, check it out it might be worth it for you. Call 646-602-5617 in New York and they will tell you all the details. Wish me luck.
writing and everything relating to human trafficking blog
All the rules, advice, contests, and information on the web about writing can get confusing, I will sometimes write about writing but mostly... I am a survivor who overcame adversity and abuse and I am writing memoirs and essays, and advocating for anti human trafficking, survivors and victims of trafficking. The fact that I am alive today to write about my experiences is a miracle.
