Athena Ives

Certified Human Trafficking Investigator, Author, Public Speaker & Marine Combat Veteran 

Forged in Trauma

"She walked through hell, continued being an angel. 

When the weak showed cruelty, she continued being gentle.

She Never played the Victim Card, she stood and dealt.

She is fierce, strong, and full of fire.

She is a Hero, she can't hold herself back, for her passion burned brighter than her fear.

She is her own sunshine on a gloomy day and her own knight in shining armor." Rakshita Raut
