She explained her feelings of “shame, disgust, suffering” out of the traumatic experience and the reality of helplessness felt by most of victims.


“I’m here, alone, and any DNA has been wiped away in the shower. The South African police will just roll their eyes when I walk in. Feel sicker than ever now,” she said.


What she aims for going live and in broadcasting her experience is to give courage to other victims to stand up and defend their worth.


“I tell you guys to speak up every single day and I know that I need to practice what I preach,” she said.


It doesn’t matter if I kissed him. It doesn’t matter if he was drunk. It doesn’t matter if I said yes to a shower. I never said he could get violent with me. I never said he could make me bleed. I never said he could rape me,” she further added.
