They put me and fourteen other girls in the back of a truck and took us to Mosul.

We were all young and pretty.

We didn't stay in Mosul long; they took us to a small village where we stayed for fifteen days.

The conditions there were terrible. They put us in a filthy room and we all got sick.

Then we were taken to Raqqa in Syria.

They told us we would be sold, some as slaves and some as brides for the fighters.

It was unbearably hot, and there were one hundred and fifty of us in a house without windows and air vents.

One afternoon about twenty men came in and started beating us.

They were shouting at us saying we are their slaves and we should obey them and do whatever they ask us.

They said they would punish us, but never kill us because they preferred to torture us.
