Awareness of social issues is the first step to address the situation.
An estimated 70% of today’s victims from human trafficking are women, and this is considered to be one of the fastest-growing and lucrative crimes all over the world. Most of the women trafficked are abused and exploited as sexual slaves.
Like any other member of a society, one wishes to eradicate any forms of injustices and stop any means of depriving a person of his own freedom. Preventing injustice and giving everyone’s freedom back is what Gwen Medved has invested in to fulfill her goals in life. She is a certified Canfield success coach and consultant, a successful entrepreneur, author, speaker, trainer with a deep commitment to family life who recently signed a contract as an executive producer for the filming of It’s Happening Right Here.
It’s Happening Right Here is a new documentary that sheds light and awareness on more than 300,000 American minors being lured into the sex trade every year. Coming in the Fall of 2020, this documentary, produced in collaboration with Emmy® Award Winning Director, Nick Nanton, intends to rescue women, men, and children trapped in sex trafficking and shines a ray of light to the victims of these crimes happening in America.
As an advocate of Operation Underground Railroad, Gwen has devoted herself to put human rights and justice for victims at the center of her efforts. Trafficking victims are highly traumatized and depressed, and most of them require counseling and social support. Empowering women begins here. Preventive factors are emphasized in this organization where opportunities for education for women and girls are provided, decent job opportunities are created, and social services and social protection are ascertained.
Her life is a testament to being able to reach a dream despite the deprivation of opportunities. Her unique personal story takes into account how the power of resiliency can transform lives after a traumatic experience. And this was manifested in the book she authored “Pillars of Success” and “Life Lessons of Success.”
She has recently signed a publishing deal with CelebrityPress® to co-author Pillars of Success with Jack Canfield and leading entrepreneurs and professionals that aims to bring together successful entrepreneurs to provide pieces of advice to its readers. The publication seeks to aggregate experiences of world-renowned entrepreneurs as catalysts of success. The book Pillars of Success is tentatively scheduled for release in the Fall of 2020.
Gwen has dedicated herself to share her experiences with women, children, and families as well as entrepreneurs, community leaders, corporate employees, among other individuals. She is ready to take the challenge of creating a systemic change that fosters love and family and combating the elements that victimize and dehumanize in our modern world.
Tackling social issues relevant to society and helping the victims get back on their feet is what Gwen Medved aspires to fulfill in her life. She is dedicated to using her experiences and expertise to be of service to help women achieve their goals, believing that women are forerunners of the world.
