Hear her Roar: Elizabeth


When I was eight, I was sexually abused by my babysitter. For years, I felt disconnected from my body and uneasy with any sort of idea of sexuality. It took me over nine years to become fully secure with myself and I still struggle with it sometimes. I think it is essential to feel confident about yourself. I spent a decade cutting my arms and legs because I couldn't accept what had happened and love myself regardless of it. Now, I can say that I am happy with who I am, and I appreciate all that I have been through.
