Type Of Speaker


“Juanita is staunch advocate for the freedom of human trafficking individuals. When I heard Juanita share her compelling story about its impact on the world, I could hear the passion in her voice. She is an extraordinary leader that gives voice to the voiceless and cares about the community. Invite her to your event to learn more about her book Can you keep a Secret? and her organization Changing Cases. You won’t be disappointed but moved into action to set people free from trafficking.” Dr Tara Jabbaar-Gyambrah, Education Consultant

“I was blessed with the opportunity of hearing Ms Juanita speak about human trafficking a
few days ago. Truly, it was an eye opener and never have I ever considered the human trafficking network being as big and diverse as it is. I’ve learned to be a little more aware and not to skip over what children might be showing you. I can’t say enough good things about this person and her presentation really hit home. It’s a sad world we’re living in and with people like her doing what she does, it brings hope to a seemingly hopeless situation.” Narie Moonesh Babwah

“Ms. Headley’s presentation was absolutely mesmerizing to say the least. I know for a fact no one left the same way they came in…not only was the speaker extremely knowledgeable and captivating in her delivery but most certainly the information disseminated was relevant and needed for our changing times. Sexual abuse, human trafficking, exploitation, rape and the list can go on and on is now so common place in our society that it seems to have become the norm and no longer the exception….exploits of one kind or another have plagued us over the
ages and Ms. Headley’s insight into the ‘trade’ and ‘stigma’ brings to life and light the scourge that we must try or attempt to address from even the simplistic options of empowerment workshops to changing and reformation of legislations and laws.” Jes DS
