“When I was 16 I lived in a hostel in Bromley Kent with other vulnerable young people, and around the Christmas table that year, i knew that one day I would use my voice to share my story. My dream at that time was to do it the NSPCC because they helped me as a child. I was a Looked After Child and I was very lucky to go into Care away from my chaotic family and I do share my story because its the voice I didn’t have as a child, its to inspire any other victim/Survivor of trauma or abuse, that where ever you are in your healing journe; We hear you and you are not alone.
Also to open those difficult conversations as I am Passionate and if we don’t talk about things, it doesn’t stop things it only exacerbates them”
I was very proud to be a finalist in the Women’s Champion group and was absolutely blown away when my own name was called out for the Award of the night. Thank you to Kent Women in Business (KWIB) for providing the platform for my 16 year old self.
What a way for International Women’s Day to be remembered
