Reflection Paper

My topic is on human trafficking and modern-day slavery. The reasons on why I chose

these particular sources was because they answered critical questions that were related to my

issue on human trafficking and modern slavery which they will help be built upon for my further

essays. These particular sources enabled me to answer critical questions like what is the current

value of illegal trafficking worldwide? How much does it cost to get an unlawful service from a

child/woman? Why is the United States in the top 10 destinations for human trafficking? Why is

North Carolina a hot spot in for human trafficking? How many people are victims of human


The sources that I chose are mostly from the Central Piedmont Community College

library database. Some of the other sources came from me doing my research and finding the

best sources that would help be built my essay. The process I chose to help me pick out my

sources was simple. I looked up essential keywords, and I would read some of the articles if it

would match the direction I wanted my essay to go it would be picked as one of my ten sources

for my reflection paper. Some of the keywords that I used to search up my topic on Opposing

viewpoints in context and ProQuest Central where “Human trafficking,” “sex trafficking,”

“human rights,” “state governments.” Keywords that weren’t successful where worlds like

“Human trafficking in North Carolina.” For that source, I had to look out of the Central

Piedmont Community College library database.

Many tools that are available on ProQuest and Opposing viewpoints in context that help

me in my search. One way that it helped me narrow down all of the results was by clicking on

the academic journals and peer-reviewed. By doing this, it allowed me to only look at and focus

on articles and journals that were read and backed by others. ProQuest and Opposing viewpoints

in context also helped me filter the articles and journals I was looking at because I didn’t want

Anything older than ten years because it would have been out of date data and information that

maybe not relevant on my specific topic and what I wanted to know. On ProQuest, it let me pick

certain locations of data that I would be reading for example in my search I only wanted to see

articles and journals that were relevant to North Carolina. ProQuest would also let me see peer-

reviewed articles and journals from around the world on human trafficking and modern-day

slavery this helped me get a global understanding my topic.

The whole process of finding my peer-reviewed articles and journals to reading and

understanding all of my sources on understanding what the message was took me about 2-3

hours. I wanted to make sure that the sources I picked are where I envisioned on my essay going

as a final product. What I learned from this process is that it can’t be rushed. You have to take

your time with it read as many of the articles that are related to your topic so that you get the best

information that is out to recent date. You have to vision on how you want your paper to go as a

final product. You also have to take your time to brainstorm on what you want your idea to be

because if you don’t; you will probably be stuck with a topic aren’t interested on. If I could do it

again, I would probably spend more time on picking sources because I know that there might be

better sources of more information than the ones I chose with more information about human
