A Transformational Journey for Change

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada—[UNVEIL MAGAZINE]—For the past couple of months I’ve been having series of phone conversations with Robints Paul (better known as Vox Sambou), a childhood friend. Often, two major topics always dominated our conversations: First, my joy of working in the field of Psychology for over five years.


Second, my idea of developing a program called “Strengthening the Family,” which is a new approach to sexual abuse prevention.

It is worth noting, this teenager was a beautiful Haitian-American who revealed that her abuses have started back in Haiti when she was 4 years of age. She was sexually and physically abused by several older men in the area where she used to live. Her parents never knew as they trusted those individuals who used to come to the house regularly.
