The misdeeds of people in power and in the limelight have brought a lot of media attention to the epidemic of domestic violence and sexual assault. Society, as a whole, needs to learn how to discuss and control this unspoken nightmare that affects our mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives.
Author Sophia Moreno is a survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault, both beginning early in her childhood years. She wanted to share her experience to help others realize that they are not alone. With the help of Sophia’s personal narrative, she hopes to inspire women to shatter the vicious cycle of abuse and assault.
The goal of I Am a Survivor is to provide necessary resources and bring inspiration to the abused. You are not alone. Other women have suffered similar horrors and escaped to live purposeful, happy lives. The path might be difficult, but there is healing on the other side of darkness.
