Kaitlyn is a teenage girl who is a human trafficking survivor.  She was trafficked from the ages of one to nine.  As a result of what happened to her, she has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and has struggled with several emotional disorders.

She started an online support community called Project H.O.P.E.  to help people who are struggling with the effects of abuse and mental illness.  She spends hours of her personal time chatting and listening to people that are struggling, suicidal, have low self-esteem, have eating disorders and other problems.  She is able to aid some of them in getting family support or therapy to help them recover and she has been instrumental in stopping several people from committing suicide or locating emergency responders to come to a person’s aid all around the world.

In spite of her own struggles, Kaitlyn is a warm, loving, vibrant young lady whose biggest desire is to help other people who have experienced the struggles that she has.
