Attorney, author and anti-trafficking advocate Pamela Samuels Young is passionate about helping young women avoid becoming targets of sexual predators. In her awarding-winning book, Anybody’s Daughter, Pamela takes a revealing look at the world of child sex trafficking. From her eye-opening research, however, Pamela knows that college students are equally vulnerable targets of sex traffickers. A graduate of USC, Northwestern University and UC Berkeley School of Law, Pamela understands the freedom college students are anxious to explore, as well as the stranger dangers they often fail to recognize. In her engaging, informative style, Pamela helps young women recognize the most common traits of sexual predators and provides students with the practical tools they’ll need to stay safe online and off line.
