CHILDREN DESERVE A VOICE!
The abuse inflicted upon us by our perpetrators, silenced us for years.
(Sergio was physically abused by his step-mother & I was sexually abused by my father when we were children).
THIS SILENCE NEEDS TO STOP for everyone who has been hurt by somebody they trusted. This is why we are making this film....to open up the dialogue about child sexual abuse!
There are many that paths you can take when any form of abuse has happened to you as a child. (emotional, sexual, physical, etc.) Some are more difficult, and some more courageous, than others.
You can remain silent. You can ignore the problem. Or you can be more effective.
Sergio and I both make an active choice everyday to live in the present - to be stronger, work harder, and be better than anyone ever thought we could be. We want to inspire and empower others who are survivors of abuse to re-build their lives, the same way that we did when we started on our own healing journeys.
Remember, It is never too late to achieve your goals in life. Everyone deserves to be happy and healthy, no matter what has happened in their past!! Love yourself and invest int your future. :)
What path will you choose for yourself?
