Survivor Stories

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.

Share Your Story to Inspire Other Survivors

Your story has the power to help other survivors reclaim hope. Although every survivor’s story is different, many will find strength through your courage to share your experiences as you’ve navigated your own healing journey.

What to Share

We want your story to reflect your own unique, authentic journey. As you decide what to share, your main goal should be to encourage, empower, and inspire other survivors. Here are a few guidelines to help you:

  • Please do not talk about the specifics of the abuse or your perpetrator as these details could re-traumatize survivors.
  • 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, please email questions@youniquefoundation.org.
