Domestic violence survivor
Azelene experienced years of physical and emotional abuse in her first intimate relationship as a young woman growing up in South Africa. She emerged a stronger person, and now teaches young people and adults how to identify (un)healthy and (un)safe relationships, and how to safely break free. Her life’s ambition as a published author and activist in the field of domestic violence is to have a positive impact on today’s and future generations.
Child sexual abuse survivor
Genevieve survived years of horrific child sexual abuse and domestic violence within her family home. Her story is shocking and saddening, but very much inspiring. After years of struggling with wounds left by these traumas, Genevieve sought help and has turned her pain into something powerful. Genevieve now dedicates her time to educating and empowering people to prevent child abuse and encourage victims to speak out.
