Miss A Will Be A Guest On Let’s Talk Live

Be sure to tune in to News Channel 8 on Thursday, February 12th at 12pm to see me on Let’s Talk Live with Natasha Barrett and Doug McKelway. I will be talking about Valentine’s Day, dating and relationships.

Coincidentally, my friends Deborah Sigmund, President and Founder of Innocents at Risk will also be on the show. The mission of Innocents at Risk is to protect women and children by raising public awareness of human trafficking and to work with other NGOs to provide housing and care for these victims in the United States and around the world. Deborah asked me to be on the board of this nonprofit, and as much as I believe in the cause and the work she is doing, I decided I needed to remain focused on my own nonprofit, The Courage Cup, but I will continue to support her efforts in any way that I can. If you don’t know much about human trafficking, I highly recommend that you rent the movie, Trade. It’s disturbing and hard to watch, but you need to be aware of what is going on all around us to women and children. It’s a global problem, much like drug and arms trafficking.

Please tune in to see us on Let’s Talk Live — it should be a lot of fun!

– Miss A
