Elizabeth moved to Canada in 2014, joining her mother, two younger siblings and her stepfather. She quickly realized that her mother was being physically abused and the family lived in fear of abuse and control. In April 2016 Elizabeth, her siblings and her mother fled to Ernestines Women’s Shelter. There the family found security and began to heal from the past trauma and abuse.
Elizabeth is currently enrolled at university working towards a science degree.
Elizabeth has demonstrated a remarkable resilience and determination to move forward.
Best of luck, Elizabeth.
