Good day, my name is Maya. I am the organizer of  'Breaking our Silence Meetup Group for Women'. 

My journey has taken over 30 years. Over 30 years of silence is too long. I chose to step forward with my story even as I worked through feeling of shame and embarrassment. Telling my story was the only way for me to put an end to my suffering. I love my self now. I have built good self-esteem. 

I want to help people. I want my story to provide a lighthouse for others who have suffered abuse. A way out, and a way to love themself. 'Breaking My Silence' is my way to help others. I am hopping to empower those who have not found their voice, yet. To make this possible for sharing to happen. 

I am proposing meeting up on the last Thursday  of each month (that may change depending on attendees). I would like to encourage those who have suffered abuse, or those who know people who have suffered abuse can attend to share stories, listen or get perspective. 

No one has to share anything...but I will! It's a safe environment; safe from judging and sharing confidential details (names, dates, abusers, etc.). The goal is to share how I entered the healing phase of my abuse and how someone else may also find their path towards healing.  I'm excited to be part of the process.  

Together, we will help each other.
