Christa Cairus, Survivor of Sexual Trafficking and a Spinal Cord Injury, on Surviving and Thriving Through Trauma
Christa Cairus is a two-time author. She’s a speaker, a teacher, a mom of 3, and a Special Olympics coach. Her first book,” Beautiful Survivor, overcoming the statistics” shares in depth detail on her life as a young girl who was preyed upon and sexually trafficked.
Her story of horrific abuse and then a tragic accident that left her paralyzed just months after having a baby could have ended right there, but her new book, “Turning Adversity Into Glitter” shares the lessons in resilience, strength, and grace that she used to rebuild her life.
In this episode of American Snippets, Christa talks about her life as a victim and a survivor. She also shares some of the lessons she’s learned in the course of finding triumph after trauma, and offers insight into how to escape and overcome abuse.
