In high school I spent much of my free time sharing my experience as a rape victim when I was young. It was deeply painful, however by sharing my experience, strength and hope with others young men and women began to come forward and seek help for their own experiences. If I were to make a living as an inspirational speaker I would spread awareness about sexual assault starting with children very young. I would spread my story throughout the community and hopefully reach the darkest corners of victims hearts. If those who live in fear knew and understood just what happened to them and that’s it’s okay to feel the pain then perhaps healing such wounds would put an end to their suffering as well as society’s battle with drug and alcohol addiction. I may not be able to change the world but easing the pain of one heart means the world to me.
