Rani Hong was just 7 years old when she was kidnapped from her mother’s home in southern India and sold into the international slave trade.

“A friend of my family came and said ‘Hey, I can help you get good a education, food, I’ll give you everything that’s best for your daughter,’ that’s what they told my mother,” Hong told HuffPost Live. “But what happened, this woman was undercover, recruiting children into the slave trade.”

Hong said she was forced to work in factories and was later sold for international adoption. On HuffPost Live Friday, she called the experience disorienting at her young age.

“I was alone, and I was afraid,” Hong said.
