I was sexually assaulted over two years ago, and it is something that I am still healing from today. One in four women will experience some form of sexual assault in their lifetime, and I thought it was important to show what that looked like, physically and mentally, for some women. Dealing with any type of trauma is difficult, and I wanted to be able to create a visualization to that process.
