I endured mental and physical abuse from my mother at a very early age. I also was sexually abused by many people. This includes George Howard, who first sexually assaulted me when I was eleven years old and who began sexually trafficking me when I was thirteen years old.
This continued until I was 16 years old. I was two months past my sixteenth birthday when I shot and killed George.
