1. Don’t you love me??” - 10 years old

2. Why don’t you want to see me anymore?” - 14 years old

3. “Happy 21st birthday my love. Buy some drinks to celebrate our love * Sagapo, Stavros” - 21st birthday

* Love in Greek

When I was 10 years old, I was molested by my dad’s best friend. I trusted him and for him to take advantage like that was hard to believe. After blocking it out of my memory for 9 years, I had my first flashback when I was 19, 3 years ago as a freshman in college. It’s been a really hard journey to say the least but I am a survivor because of it. I found strength, support, and hope I didn’t even know I had in friends, family, and myself. I’m still coping to this day and it will always be a part of my life. I’ve chosen to turn this negative into a positive by wanting to help others who have been in similar situations and in a way, I am grateful for this. I know now that I can live my life in a better way by helping others on a journey to heal as well. Thank you Project Unbreakable for helping me along my journey.
