I'm the proud mommy of two amazing little girls, a blessed wife, classical ballet instructor/former ballerina, and I'll be graduating with my BA in political science in December and attending law school in 2011. I survived a night with a man who raped, choked, and assaulted me over a period of 5 hours (this was 5 weeks after my first daughter was born 2 1/2 months premature and in the NICU) leading me to suffer severely from PTSD for 2 years. I want to use my voice and the knowledge I will gain in my legal education to defend the rights of women and children against violence, and change the system that perpetuates bias and inaccuracies which allow violence to continue, and perpetrators to walk free. The louder our voices get, the smaller violence will become.....until it disappears!
