And I was coming from the excited that I've had it.
Less life had been so privileged I had a father who -- mean a fan in me my whole life and the safest place in the -- for me is my -- but there are girls here they're bad as a place of danger and destruction and -- death and disease and I can be statistic and I'm not so what am I gonna do with that emanated and I -- work from my parents success or am I gonna go and be servant and and go to the ends of the world and help those who need my help and sell my heart was ignited.
And I am so privileged and so gifted to be a part of that -- for you know.
So -- -- why Mount Kilimanjaro.
You know it was.

Just getting out there and putting your feet on the ground and just walking walking now the altitude with what -- Which ends would try to get as high as you possibly can.
With the key because your your lungs have to adjust to the changes in the air yeah so you you have -- -- puzzle how long did it taped it to do.
-- -- -- four and a half days that one and a half very quick do you.
So -- an important thing here is to make sure that this climb translated into awareness of the human trafficking how did you make sure.
That would be declined meant to ask that event that the word got out from -- It was Helio is -- I think this is so grassroots it just -- -- immediately definitely think that really when the women started.
You know -- a woman telling a woman telling a woman telling a woman and then it just started going to that viral world it just started spreading.
And as I mentioned so many people are completely unaware of the magnitude.
You know I mean there's so much more to it than just trafficking trafficking is a huge part of it just modern day slavery -- your -- of one -- You know when you look at it I'm maternal death it's just because of lack of health care and some of these countries and stuff.
Oh and by the way the safest place to give birth Ireland -- And so as we're going.
I thought I had somebody I -- know let us know what that.
But just trying to get out there and that's how it's and it's just been a very grassroots people telling people and has.
Opportunities such as this vehicle and have you.
Invited -- to -- become aware educate yourself.
-- great but some of the State Department and this this was very happy.
Trafficking in persons report you can Google that the State Department and it challenged you know which countries are.
They -- tears you either went toward three United States is the one we know we have a problem.
This is what we're doing about it this case as we know -- have a problem we're making efforts of three says we really have a problem and we're not really doing anything about it so.
Becoming aware and those manners I think is really key and critical of our responsibility for quickly appointment so -- them.
