In stunning cinematic detail, Lloyd reveals the dark, secretive world of her past as a youth caught up in the commercial sex industry. Escaping her situation, she arrived in the United States and created “GEMS, Girls Educational and Mentoring Services” to meet the needs of other girls with her history. With great humanity, she lovingly shares the stories of the girls whose lives she has helped, and the small victories that have healed her wounds and made her whole.
Drs. Sue Myers of Theology and Women's Studies and Young-ok An of English will co-facilitate the discussion.
