Hola, my name is M.M.P and I am 15 years old. I currently live at Casa Azul. Last month I was rescued by the National Police anti-trafficking unit and brought to Casa Azul. I was relieved when I first arrived because for the first time in my life I was safe. When I was two months old my parents gave me away to a relative. Over the years her husband would beat me and I was desperate to leave and live with my parents because I thought life would be better. When I turned 12 years old, I decided to leave and go and live with my parents. I had only visited my parents on occasion over the years, so I thought my life would be better. My life got worse after my brother took my virginity and raped me daily for the next two years. During thee two years an older man wanted to help me and he asked if I would marry him and come and live with him. I said yes because it was a better option than living at home. After moving with this man, my parents received money and my father always wanted more. Both of my parents knew about the sexual abuse but did nothing to help me. I feel like I finally have a family for the first time. I missed out on so much school, but I plan to study hard so that I can catch up. I love to sing and my dream is to be a singer. I find it hard to talk sometimes, but when I sing I feel free.
