What made you join the SWAT Organization?
As a survivor of domestics violence I felt that is was important to allow my testimony and my works to help others who are drownings in silence to know that it is ok to start over and ok to be free. I also believe in the vision of what S.W.A.T. mean and I would love to support the vison of the founder and work with like minded people who want to save others victims and help them to become a survivor.
