“Hello Mr. Tree. Do you remember me?” Shari whispered. “I was little girl when you knew me as a slave, but I just wanted to let you know…I’m free now!” Sold as a slave when she was only seven years old, Shari Ho endured much physical and emotional abuse until she got free twenty years later. Little did Shari realize the media fire storm her story would ignite. She would become a beacon of hope to a whole new generation, both locally and abroad, when she was the focus of the CNN Freedom Report that made headlines all around the word. Her harrowing story is chronicled in the book, My Name is Also Freedom. Finding Freedom was Just the Beginning is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her book. This four-and a half-year journey includes the backstories, miracles, and God-stories that happened along the way—amazing stories of God’s providence intersecting with sheer faith —keeping you on the edge of your seat.
