MS SOMALY Mam, the high-profile anti-sex slavery activist whose dramatic life story was reported to be fabricated, is now trying to claw back some credibility and return to working for sex trafficking victims.
In an exclusive interview with The Straits Times, the first Asian media she spoke to after an explosive Newsweek magazine report in May suggested that she had lied about her past, the Cambodian said: "I don't care about my reputation.
" I will never give up, I will do everything for my girls." She also said she stands by her life story.
"I am not perfect," Ms Mam, who wowed Hollywood, the White House and Manhattan with her story and work, told The Straits Times over the phone on Monday.
