Many sex workers are into sex trade due to diverse reasons

I’m Sanyu Hajarah Batte 27 years old.

It all started when I was raped at a very young age, it was the day I lost my virginity, the day I got pregnant, the day I was chased away from my beloved family, my education ended that day and my life became a disaster. What happened to me made me hate all men because I thought they were all the same and still I remember my mother repeating the same words which are like whistle in my mind up to now that “men are devils, men are snakes” see what they did to you. So I did hate men although I was approached with some men who wanted to marry me but I refused them because I dint have feelings for them but only their money and gifts.

I started sex work at a very young age, traveled to many countries doing sex work and I have been in sex work for 8 years now.
