Rosa purged. She cleansed. She smudged. She felt liberated and free.
She took her life back. The life that she dreamt for as a young girl. The life that she hoped for when she migrated. The life that she wished for all women and girls. A life without violence; the only life to live. She developed new and healthy relationships.
She broke away. She joined the warriors to make positive societal change so that other survivors can be supported so they don’t have to experience life the way she did. She calls on all women to join her in celebration. She is now ready to live a higher quality life. She wants to celebrate her life with all. She will be joined by her family, friends, and other survivors.
