It’s December, the weather is beautiful, you’ve just finished the paperwork buying your mom a new house, and you are filled with happiness and anticipation.

Now imagine taking a relaxing stroll on the beach on that day, being confronted by a bush dweller, led to a secluded area and gang raped for hours.

Now imagine screaming and clawing your way out of that nightmare, only to spend a decade fighting for justice and retelling the whole story over and over, hoping it will one day lead to the rapists being caught and sentenced.
