I am here to be more than just someone who listens. I am here to help empower you to look at things differently
As a teenager, my beautiful country of origin, the Democratic Republic of Congo was plagued by war. It was the first time that I saw firsthand the destruction of war and the trauma that many girls and women endured because rape was used as a weapon to silence them. Consequently, I took an oath that my soul’s purpose will be to advocate on behalf of girls and women wherever I end up in life.
In my career, as an adjunct professor, I have seen how resilient students are. International and American students are exposed to many stressors and life transitions, which affect their grades, their identities, and their abilities to share their struggles with their families, professors, and friends.
As an advocate to stop violence against women and stigma that many people who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, HCV deal with, I took a second oath, to be the voice for anyone who has been victimized because of their gender, sexual orientation, gender identification, gender expression, age, country of origin, and medical diagnosis.
Violence comes in many shapes and forms, the result is devastating in ways that most people cannot fathom. I want you to know that you are not alone, do not keep the abuse to yourself, I can help you put the pieces back together. You deserve to claim back your life and your dreams!
