I want to talk about the things that happened to me. I am a teenage mom. I had a child when I was 15 years old. I come from a small village, and my parents were not happy.

They sent me to stay with my boyfriend. That is where I experienced this woman’s abuse.

He abused me emotionally and physically. He would beat me almost every day. And when he wanted to sleep with me, he would force himself on me. When he talked to me, he talked to me like I was nobody. He would tell me I was useless and I couldn’t compete with other women. He would say he was better than me and that he deserved more than me. What he said and did totally destroyed me.

I don’t remember exactly what happened that made me leave, but one day I packed my bags and took my child to my parents. They accepted me back, but they were not happy. I am no longer staying with him, but the things that he did to me really destroyed me.

I feel like I am useless, and I feel like I am nobody. I do not have confidence as a woman.

It is really painful.

I always dreamed of myself as being a lifesaver. That is why I did a course to be a paramedic,

because I wanted to save people’s lives. I suppose you could say I am slowly getting my life back together, but he took so many years away from me. I wish I could have got help sooner and would have had the courage to leave him the first time he hit me, but I felt ashamed, and I didn’t feel I had anywhere to go. Now, as a paramedic, when I see women like myself, I let them know they are worth so much more and give them a number to talk to someone and get help. I don’t want anyone else to have to suffer what I went through.
