But today... today I've emerged from the fog of assault and the criminal justice system. I've rebuilt, and am rebuilding, myself piece by piece. With the help of an incredible community of friends, acquaintances and family I've been able to create a new normal and take up this cause.
In 10 days I'll speak about Sexual Assault publicly. I've been asked to speak at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Third Annual Sexual Assault Awareness 5k/Zumba event. I'm both nervous and honored to do so. If you're free on April 14, 2018 at 10 am, I do hope you'll join me in supporting survivors and those who work with us.
As a warning, the statement is lengthy, so click below if you're interested in reading it. If you'd rather talk to me about my experience, or your experience, or anything for that matter, I'd love to meet you and chat over coffee or drinks.
