Voice of Resilience
As a survivor of a traumatic assault abroad, Kathleen’s experience can resonate with many travellers. While seeking support from Surrey Women’s Centre, other forms of trauma were unearthed that she'd suppressed throughout her life. But her inner resilient spirit gave her the strength she needed to face the hard truths of her past. The birth of her son gave her an even stronger sense of purpose and determination to work through her past and not let it define her. Now, she draws strength and resilience from sharing her story with others. Rather than allow the traumatic experiences of the past to overcome her, these acts of resistance help her to seek the joy and liberation that she, and all women deserve to have.
