Chloe Ayling is a British anti-human trafficking activist and an ex-model.
Earlier this year she was kidnapped during a fake modelling assignment and held for six days. Chloe was drugged, stuffed in a bag, dumped into the boot of a car, driven to a remote farmhouse close to Turin and auctioned as a sex slave by a Dark Web gang. Over the period of her capture she sought empathy from her captor through sharing her personal information in an attempt to connect him to her humanity and, when he found out she was a mother of a two-year-old boy, decided to release her.
Chloe recognises she is not an expert witness, but she speaks from the heart on her first- hand experiences. Her account of the event and how she, as a young woman, dealt with the incredible mental anguish and overcame her fears sufficiently to gain her release is an inspiring and empowering lesson of the darker side of life which she now wishes to share to empower others – a young woman surviving on her inner strength. We look forward to receiving Chloe at The Kruger Cowne Breakfast Club and listening to her story.
