Bello is the grateful recipient of two honorary doctorates received for her years of labor in the anti-trafficking movement and ministry. Her work and achievements in this arena have served as an inspiration for her writings. Bello will receive her doctorate in Pastoral Clinical Counseling in 2017/18 and her accreditation from Sarasota’s NCCA (National Christian Counseling Association) for her ministerial studies. In Bello’s words: “I teach child and young adult victims that it’s not what they call you, but how you choose to respond. Being a survivor of child trafficking has also come with a stigma that can really hurt.” As those she serves, Bello and other survivors she knows have been called many heinous names by others who may not understand what it’s like to have been a child multiply raped and exploited nor celebrate child or young adult victims’ new freedom.
