Hello my dear readers and followers, I would like to share my story of how I came to be taking part in this event where I will be a guest speaker as a Domestic Violence Survivor and Advocate.
The host of this event Richard Oluyinka happened to be live streaming on Facebook on the subject of men who are abusive towards their wives. He was so authentic and passionate about the issue and his energy was so touching and heartfelt.
I wasn't actually a follower of Richard on Facebook - however, another friend of mine was already friends with Richard and she knew my domestic violence story. She shared Richards' video with via Facebook.
Anyway, I watched the replay of Richards' video and I took that leap of faith and made several comments as I was just so loving his take on the matter.
A few days later, Richard contacted me and he asked me if I would like to be a speaker at the event in the above flyer.
The rest as they say is history.
I want to encourage anyone who has been, or knows of someone going through this terrible ordeal to not be afraid to speak up about this terrible issue which is destroying many lives.
If I had kept quiet, I wouldn't be having the chance to tell my story to the world to help save at least 1 life out there.
If you cannot join us in person at the event, please do join us live on Facebook on the date and time.
Thank you for your support.
