I was sexually abused for my entire childhood and adolescence, when I grew to adulthood I had a string of abusive relationships. I got pregnant at 17 and dropped out of high school. After seeking help, I left my very abusive second husband and went back to school. I am now in graduate school pursuing my MA in Social Policy and volunteer my time to teach teens sexual empowerment. Every time I see a young person who ‘gets it’, I heal just a little more.
