Pedal the Pacific
Christina Van Essen
I ride because no human deserves their freedom ripped away from them. I am empowered to use the voice I have been given to advocate on their behalf.
I ride for the next generation of mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts and friends.
I ride to bring light to this injustice and help provide a life of freedom for all the girls to come!
I ride because I want to see light shed on an issue that is hidden in the dark. Knowledge and education alone are capable of impacting the trajectory of this problem.
Fun loving, outgoing, charismatic, manatee obsessed, word writing girl who loves loads of pasta and people!
I choose to ride because trafficking is an issue that cannot be ignored and we all have the call to take action against exploitation.
I ride because I am confident that every discomfort and every climb is more than worth it when it comes to providing freedom and healing for survivors of injustice and reminding these individuals of their irrevocable worth.
