96: Timea Nagy's Sex Slave Nightmare
January 11, 2014
Ms. Timea Eva Nagy talks to Aingeal Rose and Ahonu about Human Trafficking on their Saturday morning Honest-to-God Series Radio show. Timea was born in Budapest, Hungary and is the daughter of a local policewoman. She is not only a survivor of Human Trafficking but also a speaker and social advocate on behalf of human trafficking victims worldwide.
Ms. Nagy’s sex slave nightmare took place over 14 years ago when she immigrated to Canada in the hopes of fulfilling a summer position as a housekeeper or nanny and earning a little extra income. Upon arrival, she was kidnapped, controlled, and kept under horrible conditions and was forced to work in the sex trade in Toronto and surrounding areas for 3 months until one day she miraculously escaped her captors.
As a result of her experiences, Ms. Nagy has founded the independent organization known as Walk With Me. Walk With Me is a community-based organization established by a survivor of human trafficking to rescue and restore the dignity, freedom, and well-being of human trafficked victims, by providing distinctive, coordinated and comprehensive immediate victim services in Ontario. Within the last 2 years alone her organization has assisted over 150 victims of human trafficking and continues to assist these victims as well as new ones every day.
Timea Nagy has a true passion for providing training to law enforcement agencies, schools, organizations, and service providers so they may be able to effectively identify victims of human trafficking. She has provided training and worked with many agencies in Canada, the United States and Europe including but not limited to RCMP, FBI, Major Drugs and Vice Units and Federal Judges in the United States.
She has trained and assisted over 60,000 Officers and Law Enforcement personnel across Canada since 2009.
