Let’s keep the conversation going.
My goal as an educator, researcher, and writer, is to continue the global conversation around sexual violence and trauma and its effects on children. In sharing my story of sexual assault and abuse, I hope to inspire other survivors to come out from beneath the twin shadows of shame and guilt through story telling. Sexual assault happens to so many more of us than we realize, and unless we talk about it, we will never come to understand it in a way that allows us to stop it. We cannot stay silent.
