Spoken word poet and social entrepreneur
Iasia Sweeting was a prodigy spoken word poet and was on her way to greatness when she was kidnapped at age 17. She was held in a single room and raped for over four years. During her captivity, she gave birth to two daughters without medical assistance. One of them was tragically starved to death, which led to the rescue of Iasia and her other daughter. Iasia was moments away from death when the police found her. She was 21 and weighed only 59 pounds. For the following 8 months, she was catatonic, unable to walk or talk. Her transformation is nothing short of extraordinary. She has now fully taken back her life, inspiring international audiences with her powerful poetry and fighting for the rights of survivors like her. On her road to recovery, she noticed many areas of weakness in Atlanta’s aftercare strategies - cracks in the system. Her organization, Sealed With a Purpose, aims to seal those cracks and strengthen support for survivors in Atlanta. She is passionate about sharing her experience and her solutions with AHT organizations worldwide.
