30 years of sex work starting in the streets of El Salvador. I got tired of the violence from the police and the military. One day I defended myself from the police and they tortured me. My hands were tied behind my back while I was attacked and asphyxiated until I bit his arm. I publicly condemned this and started my activism. I was imprisoned for 5 years. I was forced to escape my country soon after. After emigrating to other countries I learned that these countries also treat sex workers and immigrants violently.
