It can occur in person or electronically, which includes texting, social media, and other online applications. In a recent national survey[12.1 MB], 8 percent of high school students reported physical violence and 7 percent reported that they experienced sexual violence from a dating partner in the 12 months before the survey. Victims of teen dating violence are more likely to experience symptoms of depression and anxiety. They might also engage in unhealthy behaviors, such as using tobacco, drugs, and alcohol.’ https://www.cdc.gov/features/datingviolence/index.html?
I live in South Carolina, where I was born and raised. I graduated from ITT Technical Institute with a degree in Computer Design and Drafting, later returning for another degree in Multimedia. I love to read, write, create graphics, watch movies, play online games, hang out with family members/friends and network. More than anything, I enjoy helping victims/survivors of abuse in their path to healing. I have always said I would undo the abuse and its effects in a heartbeat, but I am grateful for the opportunity God gave me to use my experience. I grew up hearing that there’s a silver lining to every cloud and I used to think “not this one.” In time, I realized “not this one yet.” If I had never had to experience the undeserved attentions of classmates, my life might have been normal. I might have gotten the career in architecture that I’ve always dreamed of, but I would not be a part of the fight against abuse because I would know nothing about it. That’s my silver lining.
