After listening to the last episode of The Private Lives podcast, some of our listeners are begining to speak up on the experiences they had growing up as rape victims and they are learning to share their stories with us.
I listened to your podcast on the lady who got raped at age 6 and I was moved. I am here to share my own story. I am a young lady above 20years of age and I’ve been a church girl, walking with the Lord. Sex before marriage was out of the picture for me but I ended up being raped and left with a child who has the face of the rapist. Oh! How much I hated him and myself. It all happened after I graduated from the University.

“The first two options are out of it for my type of person. I want Marriage. I am yet to graduate from the University, and I’m in my 300 level.”
