"I suffered from survivor’s guilt. I felt it was my fault my family had died, considering I was the one that was driving the boat at the time it sank."
"The most important thing for me was to be seen, to be heard, to be accepted, to be believed. That is something that was hugely missing in my life and that is what I have now."
"I think a lot of it has caught up with me, I wasn’t protecting myself as I should have and I was warned many times about doing that."
"I call myself a survivor. I’m not a victim; I call myself a survivor."
