Joan Keddell and Amy Noble's presentation about human trafficking has really stuck with me since the December class, now I can shed light on this issue.

“Joan Keddell and Amy Noble's presentation about human trafficking has really stuck with me since the December class,” states Barnaby Davies. “Well, now I have an opportunity to give this issue some exposure by challenging journalist Sarah Warwick’s Guinness Book record of six cities in 24 hours.”
