Originally from India, Dancy is educated and has experience in commerce, business management and early childhood education. Dancy came to Cincinnati, OH in 2003 following her husband and partner for a new opportunity for her family and her two young boys. Dancy speaks and shares her family’s horrific past exploitation. She is often times the more silent partner to Harold, but it is clear that she remains a source of stability for her two boys and Harold. Dancy can often times to be found humbly taking a back seat encouraging and promoting her two sons in their absolutely amazing achievements of volunteerism, academics, community involvement and athleticism. Dancy has not only engaged in public speaking herself to promote social justice and an end to human trafficking, but in her true fashion she has quietly encouraged and pushed her husband Harold to reach more audiences and find more opportunities to share their story.
