This post includes nudity.   The Woman with Wings series without nudity can be found here:  Woman with Wings (Censored Edition)

Every time someone speaks out or tell their story about sexual abuse of violence it makes it easier for the next survivor to tell their story.

 

Here’s my story:

There are many words that define me.

Woman, mother, wife.

Photographer, blogger, victim.

When I was a student I was date raped in an University Dorm.   I suffer from PTSD and had night terrors for years.

10 Things you didn't know about me

Blog Award: Ten things you didn’t know about me

Since I started blogging, I have been nominated for a Liebster award four times  (Thank you for the last one, Jessie Singer).   I love the idea of the Liebster as it helps new bloggers make wonderful connections and start friendships that last.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, don’t worry, in the beginning I had to Google the Liebster as well.   The easiest way to explain it is to think about the basic principles of a chain letter.  You receive an ‘award’ where you don’t have to dress up and give a speech, but rather answer a bunch of questions about yourself or blogging and then you get to nominate other bloggers to do the same.    This is a nice way of introducing your readership to new bloggers, which they might not have known about without these awards.   If you need more information or want to read my previous answers to the Liebster you can find them here.

Instead of giving an Oscar worthy public monologue I will rather give a big shout-out to Brand New Mom who kindly nominated me.  This is the first blogging award I’ve been nominated for and I’m feeling honoured that I made the list.
