No turning back now…

Today is an exciting and slightly nerve-racking day for me, and for the WYR Project.

I’ve started reaching out to women who have inspired me, asking them for help in getting this project off the ground. This is my first time leading a project to effect social change. I’m writing to women I’ve never met and asking them to help me, so at this point, officially, there’s no turning back. With my requests come a personal commitment that I’ll put all of my energy into driving the WYR Project forward to accomplish the goal of creating a community of support for survivors of sexual violence to share their stories.

Today I’ll be sending an email to my close friends and family to give them the ‘heads up’ about this project. I’d like them to have a chance to digest before I attach my name to the project and really get behind it. I’m sure they’ll support me, but I’m also nervous about their reactions.

I’ll continue to share updates on the project here, stay tuned and wish me luck!
