Sex trafficking is essentially systemic rape for profit. Force, fraud and coercion are used to control the victim’s behavior which may secure the appearance of consent to please the buyer (or john). Behind every transaction is violence or the threat of violence (Axtell par. 4). Just a decade ago, only a third of the countries studied by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime had legislation against human trafficking. (Darker Side, par.1) Women, children, and even men are taken from their homes, and off of the streets and are brought into a life that is almost impossible to get out of. This life is not one of choice, it is in most times by force. UNODC estimates that the total international human trafficking is a
The way a speaker communicates to his audience is everything to becoming a great speaker. If you cannot portray your message in a way that makes sense to people, then you have failed at communication. Throughout history, influential speakers have used different methods of speaking to gather their audience on board with them. The audience has to remain interested at all times to fully grasp what you are trying to say or do. Once you lose the audience then you are wasting time standing in front of them speaking. Two major individuals in our world’s history grasped the concept of speaking among a large audience very well. John F. Kennedy (JFK), who became the 35th president of the United States, did not become president just by standing in front of a crowd, he used his abilities to speak to influence the people to vote for him. Adolf Hitler, who became well-known for reasons very frowned upon, won his audience over by the way he spoke to them. Although they have two different styles of speaking, the two became great leaders. Although Adolf Hitler left behind an evil legacy, I still believe he was a better speaker than JFK.
Throughout history, speeches have been made to motivate, inspire, educate, and inform. People such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and even Adolph Hitler have made speeches that have changed thousands of people’s views, made a country believe that every member of one religion is responsible for all their problems, or unite a nation under one shared dream. Speeches are extremely powerful tools, and the importance of them are vastly underestimated. Speeches are so powerful that they can change a whole nation’s view in just a few short minutes. The speaker must connect to the audience on a personal and emotional level in order to attain the goal that they set forth for the speech.
On the news, or on the radio, or in the newspaper we sometimes hear horrible news, like the death of 20 children and 6 adults, in Sandy Hook Elementary School, for example. The news of a man killing so many innocent people are hard to believe in or even imagine. However, what if I say that around 30 millions of people around the world are dying too. They are not dying from bullets, but their bodies and souls are dying from oppression of other humans because these people are in slavery. Modern slavery, just like any other slavery throughout our history, kills dreams, hopes, potentials, and lives of millions of people. Today, there are many different kinds of slavery. One of them is sex trafficking, which is a profitable business to people
"Sex trafficking is defined as the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act." (Polaris Project) Sex trafficking is happening in the United States more than people truly know. "An estimated 293,000 children are in danger of being sexually trafficked in the U.S. (Sexual Trafficking) In the United States some women sell themselves for sex for their own benefits, but countless others are made to be slaves for the benefit of the "pimp" by threats, fraud, abuse, coercion, and many other reasons.
What does it take to prepare a successful speech? There are many factors to take into account when becoming an effective speaker. First, I need to make sure that I am audience-centered. This means that I will need to “keep the audience foremost in mind at every step of speech preparation and presentation.” This means that I need to take into consideration the demographic and situational factors. Demographic audience analysis is when I focus the audience’s demographic factors such as age and gender. For example, when doing a presentation in a classroom setting, I will need to adjust my speech to make it less formal and more humourous because the audience is students who are in their late teens. This will help gain the interest of my classmates. When a politician does a speech for their party, they need to take into consideration that the age of the citizens, the different religions, sexual orientations, and people’s different cultural and racial background. Their presentation will be quite formal for people to take them seriously. When
As I stand before you today I can honestly say I made it. My four years of high school were filled with growth, adventure, loss, hope as well as determination. My time here at Vance has most definitely been an interesting one. In my time here I have made lifelong friends, memories and history, I can say we have come a long way as a school since my freshmen year. We have grown as a student body into one unit. We have been shown to use or voices and speak for others that can’t speak or defend them. My four years at Vance has prepared to me to know what I want and go for and that I can be whatever I set my mind to.
What is the purpose of a speech? To try to get information out to an audience. How can you get information out, if you can not get the audience's attention? Being able to understand how and why connecting to the audience is an important factor to giving a good speech. When keeping your audience in mind during a speech, it is important to know about your audience, to adapt to your audience during the speech, and to relate to your audience in order to keep the audience intrigued the whole time.
My heart aches for women who endured sex trafficking. After college, I long to join the World Race, an 11-month humanitarian missions trip. Afterwards, I intend to obtain my Masters and intern with an international organization that helps women out of sex trafficking. My desire and motive is to help those women get back on their feet and teach them confidence, that they are priceless, worthy, and that they have purpose! I would like to start a non-profit that concentrates on improving women in their spiritual life, to become their best self, and be successful members of their society. When I was younger, I had dreams to change the world. At first I felt that to be studying nebulas, but I realized my change for the world is people.
I want to talk about a girl named Danielle. She likes swimming, SpongeBob, Mexican food, writing poetry, getting her nails painted, and Harry Potter books. Sometimes she’s moody; but mostly she is open and eager to be loved. When she smiles, huge dimples crease her chubby face and they are capable of melting hearts. She’s much like any other 11-year-old girl in America, except for one critical difference. Over the past year of her life, she has been trafficked up and down the East Coast by a 29-year-old pimp; and sold nightly on Craigslist to adult men who ignore her dimples and baby fat and purchase her for sex. Sadly, Danielle is one of many faceless victims who are all over the world (Lloyd 1). In order to end this modern day slave trade known as sex trafficking we must educate ourselves on the topic and actively get involved in the efforts to end trafficking.
Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) in the United States is a topic that is not mentioned very often and many Americans are unaware of how serious of a problem we have with DMST right here in our very own country. I was unaware of the seriousness of sex trafficking until recently when our church had a guest speaker who was a victim. She started being groomed at the age of four for use in sex trafficking. Her father who is a Baptist preacher and her mother was a school teacher are the people that started prepping her for sex trafficking. As a society we need to be more informed and aware of the seriousness of DMST so that we protect our younger generation from this crime.
An acceptable and memorable speech deliverance is dependent on the orator’s ability to communicate key ideas through the usage of rhetorical devices in order to present and achieve their message or key idea. Malala Yousafzai’s speech, addressed towards all nations, strives to engage the audience through the usage of direct quotations, anaphora and evidence, to highlight and stand up for human rights and education. Likewise, Barack Obama’s speech against Gun Violence/Gun Control addresses every single person in the United States, and globally, to support his fight at ending mass shootings, largely through the use of direct quotations, anaphora and evidence.
The speech has to be important and interesting, so people can learn something about it. Sometimes people will believe in my speech because their values or beliefs, and my audience is young people that might be interested on my topic. In addition, I can explain why vegan diets are bad for professional athletes, so the audience will be interested because
