The story of Blessing

Blessing is Nigerian She arrived in Italy through a friend who promised her a job in a company. Soon she realized that there was no company and no job for her. Her friend offered her another job that would have allowed her to give back the money of the journey. She accepted, but only later she understood that they were asking about prostitution. Blessing was threatened, and her family too. Soon after Blessing’s dreams, expectations of a change in her life and her desire to offer better living conditions to her family collapsed under unfaithful promises and exploitation.
