Hello I am a survivor of a extreme violant relashonship where i was raped repeatedly and tied up in a room for days on end with no water or food. 2 years ago my daughter Tamia and I ran from this man thathad told me everyday the wanted to kill me and take my child to sell in Trinidad for sex trade. We were able to escape and we came to where I grew up in Northern Canada after staying in a tent in the woods for 4 weeks as I was scared he would find us.
I was a singer for 13 years and was lucky enough to make enough money to pay all our bills and this was ripped away from me when we had to flee. I have worked extrememly hard to get us into a good sitiuation and to begin our healing from the past.
My 14 year old daughter Tamia is very talented as well, in music and acting and also anything to do with art and while in the city she was doing oil painting and music lessons. She has come a long way since we left but now she is starting to be very depressed and does not leave the house very much. Her anxiety from the kids in this town has become out of control and is now home schooled. She wants nothing more then to get back to having friends and going to high school but she will not do it here. The town we live in is very small with no oppertunity for creative people to find their happy in their art and we would like to move To Vancouver where we can both grow and thrive with our creative minds.
I feel tha if we do not get out of this town that we will both be so depressed that we will not make it out alive.
We need help to get our one bed and couch to Vancouver and help with ur first month rent as I have lost my job here due to the stress and depression and started to have seizures.
I have a wonderful job workin with disabled individuals when i get to Vancouver and will start to sing again on a regular basis. We have found a 1 bedroom place that i will be able to afford and just need help to get there to get our lives started again.
