faces of survivors

At The Younique Foundation, we believe that creating a strong community of survivors is a key way to inspire hope and promote healing. Reading others’ experiences can help you know that you’re not alone. And we’d love for you to add your voice to our community.

let your story inspire others

You can help other survivors reclaim hope by telling your story. Although every story is different, many will find strength in the light and courage of your voice as you share how you have learned to navigate the storms of life that come to abuse survivors.

What to Share

We want your story to reflect your own authentic journey. As you decide what to share, your main goal is to encourage and empower. You are welcome to share a video or write your story. Here are a few guidelines to help you:

  • Videos should be between 1-5 minutes long.
  • If you are sending a video file that is too large to submit here, please send a zip file or use a free online service like Google Drive or Dropbox to store the file and provide us with the link.
  • Written stories should be no longer than 800 words.
  • Please do not talk about the specifics of the abuse or your perpetrator as these details could re-traumatize survivors who are not as far on their healing journey.
  • Please share a breakthrough moment that was a turning point for you. We would love to hear how you are moving forward and healing.
  • Please upload high resolution photo(s). If you have questions email cepperson@youniquefoundation.org.
