Hi, My name is Nina and I am a small business owner, a writer, a mother a rape advocate and a survivor of rape.
My book “The Blossoming of the Sacred Lotus,” is part biography, part instruction manual for other women who have gone through this type of trauma. I wrote this book to let other survivors know that they are not alone.
“After my assault, it took me a long time to recalibrate my life,”. “I like to tell people that I was broken, but not broke. I still had my strength and determination. I still had my voice. I still had my power. This is my capital in the world, and I wasn’t about to let my attacker take that away from me as well.”
That strength that led me towards other survivors, where she listened, counseled, and “stood in the gaps” to help them through their struggles. “The Blossoming of the Sacred Lotus” is my way of sharing that message with more survivors as they navigate the difficult journey of sexual assault recovery.
