Introduction to Amanda Blackwood

Amanda Blackwood wears; author, public speaker, podcast host, artist, survivor; but ultimately, she’s a woman who transformed her trauma into resilience and strength.

When Amanda finally managed to get away from the man who was trafficking her, she was thirty-one years old and didn’t know what she’d gone through even had a name, much less how to deal with the pain of feeling like a broken person, unworthy of love and filled with so much anger. On a freezing cold day in 2018 she saw former trafficked people standing strong and showing their beautiful resiliency on a stage at an anti-trafficking event. At that moment she finally knew what her purpose in life would be. Since then, Amanda has spoken on a multitude of stages, international summits, radio programs, and had over a dozen books. She launched two podcasts-one that focuses on interviewing other authors of trauma, and the other that discusses the long-term consequences of trauma and how to fight back for a better life. Amanda lives in Denver, Colorado with her rescue cats and supportive husband who keep her safe.
