Sometimes I don’t have the words for my experience. This video is dedicated to Advocate & Dancer, Philip Deal.


“One in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually assaulted by the age of 18.”

I was a victim. I survived and now I thrive. I am an advocate for sexual assault prevention, awareness and education. Below you will find links to helpful information.
