San Diego (CNN)Susan Munsey’s mission to help victims of sex trafficking in the US is a personal one.
When she was 15, growing up in Los Angeles, Munsey started dating a man she thought was the real deal.
“I’d never had a boyfriend before. He gave me compliments. He was charming. He took me out to eat,” she recalled. “I was insecure and didn’t have a lot of self-esteem. … And here I had this 24-year-old boyfriend. Wasn’t I something special?”
