My Introduction
Hello, My name is Timika. From ages 5-10, two family members led me into the dark wilderness of sexual abuse. Learning to be a student of life instead of a victim played a significant role in my healing. In my professional (educator, health coach, and nurse) I have met many people who struggled with adopting and maintaining healthy behaviors and living a purposeful life due to some childhood experience, including sexual abuse. I believe that we have the right to joy, peace, and a purpose-filled life despite the action of others. I am currently working on my memoir, Bent Not Broken, which deals with my personal experience with childhood sexual abuse. The more we share with the world, the less alone people feel and the more they learn that healing is possible. I'd like to learn and share your dreams, hopes, and projects as you navigate your journey after abuse. Make this lifetime great! Timika‚̧
