I am a mother of 4 children. A survivor of abuse from several over the span of my life thus far.  Having lived the terror, the pain and the suffering, I now have made it my personal mission to at least open my mouth against the unjust ways that these abusers, molesters, and criminals get away with their heinous acts.
I am a very strong willed woman now. I decided one day to be a Survivor instead of a 'Victim' and have since done what I can to the best of My abilities, to help other women and children out. (And men in other circumstances)
     At this point in time, I've fought for websites to be put up in Marion Ohio, alerting everyone of convicted rapists, child molesters. They had the funding but didn't make the site until I got loud and got others involved. (I still thank Rev. Tim for putting a temporary one up 'til they finally put one up, and for your support and action. You are a sweetheart)
     I personally alerted parents when a convicted sexual offender has moved into their neighborhood. I have scouted addresses of listed offenders and made sure I seen them at their rightful address, reporting empty houses or asked for houses to be investigated if I do not see that individual at that house anytime I have watched.
    I won't go into personal details of my own abusers, as I have come to terms. I have healed to a degree that I am comfortable enough to be just a little angry. I use that anger towards making sure my children and other children are safe. 

    My main Goal for the next two years, is to gain enough women in the area to form a Troupe. I am a Bellydance Teacher/Troupe Leader.

    With this Troupe, we have plans on doing fundraisers for Women's Shelters, different child related programs that help out children of abuse, incest and molestation. Breast Cancer research is another yearly fund raiser we plan on doing. 
    I teach at a place that only charges $3.00 per class for not only my bellydance class, but, Yoga, Toning and Aerobics. I have been yelled at by family members for not 'making money' off of my students. But you know what? I know how it is to be 'poor', I know how it is to struggle. I want my classes to stay cheap so that others who have been in or are in my shoes, can attend. Just another way I feel better by 'helping out'.
    How have you helped your community? I love hearing about it. so Speak up!
