I Want to be Able to Help Other Women

I wanted to share my story. I was molested at a teenager by a family member for several years. I never told a soul about the ordeal and I felt so violated. One day a friend of mine went to school authorities; that same family member was molesting her as well. That started the journey of this family member being held in court and served a short sentence. This whole ordeal caused emotional turmoil within my family. My mother did not even believe me which hurt more than anything. Eventually I graduated and went to college, married, and started a family. It wasn’t until my daughter was born that I finally started therapy for the past trauma. I have been able to move on with my life. The Younique Foundation and Defend Innocence hold a place in my heart. I want to be able to help other women who were victims of sexual abuse.
