  • I have built a home in my soul. To house everything that went before and everything I now need room for.
  • In December 2012 I took part in Project Unbreakable.

    The project took a photograph of me holding the words left behind by my abuser.

    Project Unbreakable gives individuals the opportunity to have those words heard for the first time. Before taking part in this project I had never been asked once, what had been said to me. I have been asked many, many times what has been done to me. The consequence of those words has been more deeply impactful in my life than the actions and I cannot underestimate those actions.

    I invite you to see the words and the visible impact they had and the moment that they came to an end.

    Please be warned that the images on this site can be very triggering.
