“I was molested at the age of seven by my oldest cousin. He discovered he could rape me and I wouldn’t say a word, and it went on until I was 14. I trusted my first boyfriend with my past and told him about the trauma I had suffered, but he just forced me to have sex with him and smiled while he did it. So, to any and every girl out there who has suffered rape or assault or harassment of any kind: be brave and tell someone. We are brave, and we are strong, and we are the force that will put an end to this.”
