Sexually assaulted at age 19 and married to an abuser at age 20…I got lost and forgot who I was.
For years I had
I took back my self-worth.
I took back my identity.
I took back my voice.
I took back my life.
I Have Found My Voice and I Refuse to Shut Up became my motto in 2005.
I knew I had always been an intelligent person but I had been spun in so many circles and clouded with so much self-doubt that I thought I had literally, somehow, become dumb.
Once those clouds lifted…
I discovered I have a great sense of humor.
I discovered I am a talented photographer…an artist.
I discovered my purpose…my calling in life.
This was my awakening.
I vowed never to lose my identity again and most importantly never to lose my voice again.
I hope this site will bring awareness on the serious issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, and bullying.
If it can serve as an awakening for even one person then I will consider it a success.
You are not alone.
Write yourself a happy ending,
