– Inspire Courage –
I understand many of the short and long-term effects suffered by victims and survivors of childhood sexual abuse because I have experienced them myself. We live with these memories for a very long time …
Like most survivors, I have kept my abuse a “secret” for many years after the abuse had ended. I know how difficult it is to speak out because of the fear of being met with resistance or because you feel that you can’t trust anyone. I plan to provide safe platforms where victims and survivors of sexual violence can find their voices, talk about their feelings, find a way of dealing with the effects of their experience and heal.
My aim is to positively impact those who can’t speak for themselves and inspire courage in those who have not found their voices
