Sexual Abuse and Rape

I was sexually abused by an extended family member from the ages of 6 to 12.

When I was 21 when I was raped. I was an au pair in Italy. So like you I was raped in Italy. I am watching your film right now. You are very brave to go back to Italy. I’m to scared. I’ve just watched the part saying you cried on the train after you were raped. I remember crying on a train to Milan, the pain I was feeling was horrible. I reported the rape when I was back in England. I’m still waiting for the Italian police to tell me what’s happening with the case.

I’ve only recently reported the childhood sexual abuse to the police.
It has taken me awhile to find my voice again.

I have suffered so much from the abuse and rape – depression, anxiety, self harm, suicidal thoughts, eating disorder, self esteem issues, a bad relationship with alcohol, trust issues, boundaries, touch, my femininity, anger and feeling so alone.

I’ve found my voice now though. I won’t keep quiet.

Fighting back helps me, I volunteer for a local community group called YES Matters. We are organizing mass march on parliament called #ENOUGH. Because we have had ENOUGH of how women are treated in the UK.

It would be fantastic if there was a big turn out in London but it would be more amazing if it became universal.

If we support each other than we become stronger as one.
