An Open Letter to All the Super Women: 5 Insights On Abuse And The Strengths It Taught Me.
The various degrees of abuse I had faced rattled my foundation, but it also revealed to me the strength I had and the potential that had been buried deep down inside me.

The grey metal wall in my backyard shimmered like a piece of silver jewelry, and as I took a final drag from my cigarette, my bangs tickling my face, I felt so alive.
