Timea E. Nagy is an author, speaker, and advocate on behalf of Human Trafficking victims worldwide who seeks to build public awareness as well as empower citizens, government agencies and law enforcement to combine forces, streamline programs, toughen laws, and enact legislation to wipe out the shameful practice of human slavery.
Before her 20th birthday, Timea made what was to become an extraordinary and life-changing decision to visit and work in Canada for the summer of 1998 to earn extra income during a lull in the music video production market. She answered an advertisement and spoke with an articulate woman who told her she could work as a housekeeper, nanny or nightclub dancer, which sounded like a good opportunity to explore another culture and save some money for her future.
On April 18, 1998, Timea arrived at Terminal 3 in the Pearson International Airport. Filled with excitement for a summer of adventure, Timea was whisked away by her employers, stripped of her identification, and informed her work contract was in fact of an exotic dancer not what an intelligent, sweet and naïve young lady from Hungary would have ever dreamed for herself.
Here starts the journey of an immigrant sex slave which is recounted in her book, Memoirs of a Sex Slave Survivor.
Timea was forced to work as a sex slave in Toronto, Canada for the following 3 months including numerous occasions of sexual assault at her employers hands as well as a Canadian agent - a living nightmare.
On August 18, 1998, she miraculously escaped her captors and made it back to Budapest, Hungary.
But yet again, life had other plans. While she thought she was returning home to safety, instead she was in even greater danger as the Hungarian police failed to protect her. Against all reason, she went back to Canada where she actually felt more secure.
