Hi, there my name is Morty, and welcome to my first EVER blog! Can you tell I’m excited? Anywho, I know you’re probably wondering who Morty is and where is Ricky? Well, Ricky has gone off to live her new chapter in her life and she passed on this huge opportunity to me! What would that be? Well, to write the weekly blogs!¬†

In case you were wondering, I knew Ricky very well. She’s like a sister to me. Seeing her transition and off to college was the most beautiful but heartbreaking moment to see. It was beautiful because I was blessed enough to be part of her journey and see her grow! But also a little heartbreaking too because I knew how much I’d miss her here. Picture this, we were definitely like two peas in a pod. We grew together, graduated together, laughed together, cried together, shared unforgettable memories together and we of course lived together for a while! I am extremely happy and thankful for our friendship! Ricky, if you’re reading this, I miss you!

Having a blog has always been a dream of mine. As a teenager, I thought of creating a blog about makeup and heartbreaks. But as a survivor of human trafficking now and how my life took a turn, I feel the need and responsibility to talk about my own personal experiences in hope that one day it could inspire a survivor and also spread more awareness about HT.

I thought that I would have enough time to introduce myself and tell you more about who I am and how I ended up here at SafeHope Home in the first place. But I think that’ll be next week’s blog post! I’m a true believer that we all have our own unique stories and experiences. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy this new series of blogs to come. 

Until next week,

Morty
