Through talking with girls of my age, I have been shocked to discover how many have experienced sexual abuse. Many young people are reluctant to talk about what they have been through because they feel often feel ashamed and guilty about what has happened to them.
After I discovered how widespread sexual exploitation is, I wanted to do something to tackle it.
A group of us got together with Fixers to make a film called Step in to the Light about the importance of speaking out if you have been abused. We want to get the message out there that talking to someone you trust about what has happened to you can really help.
