Madeleine Black has an unusual personal story which she uses to inspire and motivate others.  She chose to forgive the two men who gang raped her at thirteen years old and she shares her story for many reasons:

End the shame, stigma and silence surrounding sexual violence.

Enable others to find their voice, whatever their story is.

Encourage others to live their life courageously too.

Make people question their own thinking and mindset.

She wants to show how changing her mindset tapped into her resilience and transformed her life.

Ultimately inspire hope and show people that we are all so much stronger than we think we are. 

She wants people to know that it’s not what happens to us that is important but what we do with it.

Encourage others to see we can get past anything that happens to us in both our professionally &  personal life.
