I thought it’s time to tell my story, I am the face behind these designs.
I went through sexual abuse for 5 years from the age of 11.
I was embarrassed and I was made to feel like a liar through court and by the police ‘she just attention seeking’ friends would say.
This abuse caused me to have depression, anxiety and body dysmorphia I have been sexual harassed and abuse through my adult life from men who think it’s acceptable to touch a woman without consent!
I will never forget the abuse I went through crying myself to sleep at the age of just 11 I hadn’t even hit puberty. I didn’t even know what sex was I didn’t get a normal way to express myself sexually I was forced upon.
Now just imagine your daughter, sister, friend etc how would you feel?
The sick sensation I felt in the pit of my stomach I will always wonder what it would be like to have not gone through this abuse but I truly think it has made me the strongest person I know.
One thing I would say to the 11 year old me is you are so amazing and strong and tell someone don’t be embarrassed.
I struggle to this day and wish no one else would ever have to go through this.
The guts it has taken to be in-front of a camera with just my face I never thought I would ever do but here I am, a degree, collection, and helping heal other survivors.
I know some people are still struggling and if you are my DM’s are always open you can tell me I can help do not suffer in silence because the moment you break that silence your life will begin to change 💕
