I Now Can Fly

Melanie, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse who attended the Haven Retreat by The Younique Foundation.

I was at my breaking point. I had thrown all of my being into being a mom, but I had never dealt with my past. I knew I had reached a point where something had to give. So, one late night I filled out the application, not thinking I would be accepted. It was a whirlwind after that.

“The best thing that happened is she believed in herself so she could fly!” 

The Younique Foundation did that for me and more. The tools it gave me to help myself and believe I am beautiful are the most important things I could have. The Younique Foundation saved me from such a dark place. It pulled me to the light. Being a survivor does not make you a victim. It does not make you weak. It makes you a warrior! And truly from then on, I have been able to fly!
