I was raped in a Romanian orphanage. I was born in Romania and I was in the orphanage until I was 8 years old. I am now 25. I was abused a lot. I got adopted by people from the UK. I now have an amazing family in Scotland. I graduated last year from Oxford university and I was one of the few women to get a first class honors degree in law.
You can survive rape and overcome it. Do not let the rapists win. Live your life to the full. Be amazing. Do everything you can to be happy and open up your heart. My heart was so numb but love cures everything. I have a boyfriend and good friends and I am very grateful for everything. You have already won because you survived rape. I just wanted to share my story because you can overcome the worst experiences in life. I was raped and I am stronger than ever and happy. You can be too. Rape does not define you.
Thanks for reading. The best is yet to come.
