Jenn is amazing! I learned a lot more about human trafficking and how big the problem really is. Jenn really knows how to make people listen to what she is saying. She is energetic, straight to the point, and is not afraid to show or tell the truth regardless if people want to hear it or not. I could tell how passionate she is about human trafficking from the way she spoke.
Her overview of the WAR organization and program was both very informational and eye opening. Jenn is very enthusiastic and passionate about human trafficking prevention and awareness. She inspires her audience to "Be courageous, Be aware, and Share". Jenn is a great example of not just talking the talk, but walking the walk.
Jenn Amo’s presentation is one that will stick with me for the rest of my life. Her passion was inspiring, her heart on fire was invigorating and her courage to speak on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves and to change the story was touching. I laughed and I cried.
