In a new episode of Myx TV’s “I’m Asian American and …” series, we meet attorney Panida Rzonca, who works at the Thai Community Development Center helping victims of human trafficking.
Zap2it has an exclusive sneak peek at the “I Fight Human Trafficking” installment that features Rzonca helping a woman named Pranom, who was coerced into being a sex slave in Hong Kong at the age of 23.
Pranom now lives in the U.S., and Rzonca helps her obtain a work permit so she can live legally in the country. “I didn’t know that I would have to sell myself to make this money,” Pranom recalls about how she was recruited into the work. “I felt very sad and they were coercing me into doing this type of work even though I didn’t want to do it.”
“I’m Asian American and …” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Myx TV.
