3rd Installment of my Sexual Violence and Rape Series
This was one of the most painful and difficult stories to write especially because the victim has become a good friend of mine and I never knew the extent of her ordeal until I started writing this series.
An exert of the post:
I’ve never felt so helpless researching or writing a story as I did with this story. It took me twice as long as it normally does to write and I’m still not sure I’ve managed to capture the essence of the story.
The strength of the human spirit astounded me as I listened to this tale unfold and realised how many times this innocent soul was shattered and fought back. This is the story of a girl whose fate was decided by everyone around her. This is the story of the cycle of shame.
