Back in October last year, Kaya Scoderlario was one of the many women who came forward about their experiences with sexual assault.
She revealed that it happened to her when she was twelve.
Now, a few months later and Kaya is detailing the incident a little further, explaining how she is happy that she decided to open up.
Talking to the Metro UK, she revealed:
"The response was wonderful, it was a relief but I am still dealing with it, and I am now dealing with a new side of it, which is this.
"I will be asked about it forever now. I hope it doesn’t define me but it will always be under my name and I accept that – but I am proud I was brave enough to do it and I am grateful for the support I had from friends."
"I remember thinking that if I was 12-years-old and I had this horrific thing happen to me but I saw a woman I admired speaking up about it, it would have made me feel less guilty, and it would have inspired me to think 'this won’t hold me back, this is something that has happened but I am not a victim'. So I thought if I can do that for one person then I owe it to my 12-year-old self."
Power to you, girl.
