I Am An Example

Wed, 08/06/2014 - 14:05 -- gabydla



My dream job is to be spokesperson

As a surivor of sexual child abuse

I believe I have a lot to say

To stand for

And to do


I did not just survive for myself

I survived to be an example for others


As I pursue a career in Film

I will use this as a platform

To help me have the power

The voice

To be heard and to help


I can’t see the road so clearly

But I know that this is my mission in life

I’m not just a victim

I am an example


My determination to live

To never let this dark chapter define who I am

To be that strong, independent person

With a strong will to live

Are among the many things I hope to instill in the little one day
