This emaciated young girl stuck in a huge fishbowl reflects the repercussions of my abuse; often feeling alone, powerless, unable to breathe, lost and tiny. But the young girl continues to breathe regardless, as she is a fighter, she is a warrior, she is strong, capable, and empowered even when she doesn’t feel that way. This girl is going to achieve great things, and fulfil all her wildest dreams.
