When Nichols was 11 years old, she went to a party with a few older boys, and it "ended up being [her] worst nightmare." The boys raped Marisol, and she remembers "waking up on a bed with no underwear on and everyone laughing." She added, "It changed the entire trajectory of my life in a day." Nichols launched the nonprofit organization Foundation for a Slavery Free World in 2014 after she began helping law enforcement agencies catch human traffickers and pedophiles. Her traumatic childhood experience inspired her to get involved, and she stated, "If good people don't know about it, it will keep happening, because good people are the only ones who will do anything about it. They're the ones who, when faced with inhumanity, will try to stop it. Because you have to try, right? Even if it doesn't work." In 2020, Marisol signed a deal with Sony Pictures Television to executive produce a TV series about her work as an undercover sex trafficking agent.
