Still Fighting

I painted this at the start of my healing process from sexual assault. I felt I was trying to hold strong with no water and dark clouds surrounding me, but there was a little sliver of light. This gave me hope, and so I was still fighting. This was my first painting. It was my first step to healing from sexual trauma and ultimately creating the nonprofit, Helping SAVE (Sexual Assault/Abuse Victims Everywhere), so survivors like me could learn healing skills like art, yoga, and dance.
