Community Ambassador, AB

I have been lucky to have a tribe of extraordinary women to surround me, and lift me, for most of my life. I think that there are many types of abuse. And even though some women feel lucky to not have had physical abuse happen to them, some, through insecurities, don’t realize the emotional and mental abuse that has been inflicted on them. The other thing, that I don’t hear a lot of, but would like to bring light to is the domestic abuse to men. I am heavily impacted by the suicide rate in our country, and the rate with men who are afraid to speak out about their feelings, is something that I think we could grow to address.
