Hi Mengdi,

Welcome to World Pulse, dear:-) Wow! You are so strong for speaking up and sharing! Good for you. I'm so sorry this happened to you and that this man that you trusted took advantage of you. I hope that you're feeling better now and that you know it wasn't your fault in any way shape or form?

Did you file a police report on him so he can't do it again to someone else?

Thanks so much for being so courageous and sharing your story. You will help to inspire others to speak up and be brave, if they need to, too:-) Hope you feel better soon, dear.

Dear Mengdi,
Welcome to World Pulse! You have created a really powerful video and your message of the vulnerability of being abused by trusted teachers, coaches, religious leaders, family members comes through loud and clear. Your speaking out about the confusion of being groomed is so important! And your strength is wonderful and inspiring to witness. So I hope you continue to hold onto that strength of yours, and that you feel surrounded now by all of us in World Pulse. Yes, #MeToo, #HerToo, #TimesUp. Together from here on. I look forward to more from you, so wise and so strong. I hope you feel all of our arms linking together here.
In sisterhood,
Tam

Hello, Mengdi,

You are so brave to speak up! You are not less of a woman because of what happened to you. No one can take away the dignity you have as a woman.

Thank you for coming her and breaking your silence. May you inspire more women to raise their voice against harrassment.

Welcome to World Pulse! We’re happy to have you here.
