Summary During her teens, Rachel Lloyd ended up a victim of commercial sexual exploitation. With time, through incredible resilience, and with the help of a local church community, she finally broke free of her pimp and her past and devoted herself to helping other young girls escape "the life." In "Girls Like Us," Lloyd reveals the dark world of commercial sex trafficking in cinematic detail and tells the story of her nonprofit organization: GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services). She shares the stories of the girls whose lives GEMS has helped -- small victories that have healed her wounds and made her whole.
