* Would people believe me? * Would people judge me? * Would the book help others as I intended it to do? * Would the book give me closure, justice? * How was I going to finance it? * Who was I going to get to write it? Every time I tried I became an emotional wreck! Eventually after being indecisive for a long time, I decided to save up the money to pay a ghostwriter to help me put my thoughts and lived experiences together and write the book. My second most memorable moment was receiving the first copy of my book and launching it in Sept 2013. I spoke for the first time publicly to eighty people about the abuse my siblings and I had suffered as a child. The reaction to me speaking and the book was amazing. From that day I have never looked back. The third most memorable moment for me is being able to empower, help and support victims and survivors in many ways by using my lived experiences and my knowledge as a health and wellness expert. Launching the charity SOB in 2016 and publishing the Breaking the CycleÂŽ C.L.E.A.N.E.R.ÂŽ Living Therapy Programme book. Becoming a Consultant to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse in 2015! Everything I do is about making the victims and survivors journey of recovery better. Using my lived experiences to make change happen wherever I can.
