At age 15, Jas Rawlinson was a young girl drowning in depression, trying her best to keep treading water against the tides of family violence, bullying, and suicidality that threatened to drag her under.
For years, Jas ‘kept swimming,’ waiting for everything to change… and then, suddenly, it did. But what followed, was something she never saw coming.
It was at this moment that Jas had to make a choice; to dig deep, and choose to find a new path forward, or to succumb to her trauma forever. Determined to take control of her life, Jas remembered the promise she made to herself as a young girl; a promise to one day be a voice for other women and children trapped in fear and silence… and so, one step at a time, she began re-write her story.
Now a global speaker, anti-human trafficking advocate, and best-selling author, Jas tells her story in full for the very first time.
Featuring never-before-shared stories of her private investigations into human trafficking and exploitation, and shining a vulnerable and courageous light onto what it takes to re-write trauma into triumph, 'The Stories We Carry' is the most empowering book you'll read this year.
