Sold into slavery as a girl, Shyima Hall becomes a U.S. citizen: When she was 10, Shyima Hall was smuggled from Egypt into the U.S. as a slave to a family in Irvine. In Montebello on Thursday, she became an American citizen.

Hall said her dream now is to become a federal agent for ICE to help crack down on human trafficking and free the enslaved.

Your feel-good story of the day.
