The survivor’s description of sexual violence perpetrated against them:

"Child Sexual Abuse starting at age 4 until age 17 - family member, never got into trouble because my parents were pastors, Sexual Battery, Domestic Human Trafficking from 18 to 22 - I was over the age of 18 so in my state it was look at as prostitution, not trafficking. Rape at 23 by a roommate with multiple personality disorder at a treatment program for trafficking survivors, when I told the program director what had happened her response was “you know that’s not really her in there” and rape at 24 resulting in pregnancy - gave my daughter up for adoption, her father never took responsibility for his actions."
