On January 23, 2015, I came out and told my very own story, who I once called my father. It was the hardest thing to do, because I had never told a single soul. A year later and a new job later, I found someone I could trust who had been in hard shoes also. I showed her this website, Brave Miss World, and I showed her my story without even having to say a single word.
I’m proud to say, she gave me strength to open up to CPS and with great difficulty, they have arrested the man who molested me and my siblings for years on.
In a month I will be going into court with my chin up and testifying against him, knowing I have a great deal of people on my side.
With great gratitude, I will be forever grateful for Brave Miss World and the help with the two comments I had. Even though I never contacted them because I was scared, I wanted everyone to know that each and everyone of us can hold so much strength without even knowing it.
