Madeleine in the Media


If anyone had told me a few years ago that one day I would be giving radio and TV interviews, speaking publicly or writing a book; I would never have believed them.  But after sharing my story publicly for the first time in September 2014 I realised that my voice and words are now my strength and I will continue to speak out against sexual violence for all those who can’t find their voice yet.

I want people to know that they are not what happened to them, that its never too late to get support and that they can heal from sexual violence and transform their pain into something positive.

My aim is that by sharing my story it inspires hope for other people to understand that if we choose to we can get past anything in life.  After all it’s not what happens to us that is important but what we do with it.
