Speaking About Rape

Ending the silence of rape is extremely important. I am passionate about sharing my experiences with overcoming the sufferings caused by rape. Through opening up, women are able to relate to other survivors as well as have a deeper understanding of what survivors undergo. If you would like me to speak at a school, fundraising event, public awareness event or another venue encouraging rape awareness and prevention, please contact me through email.
