I really don't need pity, I need to get away.
Hi everyone, thank you for clicking, I really appreciate it. I was recently raped by my male cousin (who used to be very close to me.) Yes I was and still am very emotionally and physically devastated but that's not what I started this fund for.
I'm 18 years old and I've never been on a holiday (unless having lunch at the park down our road counts.) It never used to bother me until the whole deal went down. I know I'm being very casual about it but it really hurts me so much that I've become numb to it. But anyways, I just really need to get out of this environment because it is toxic. Legal action is being taken against him which is a reason among many as to why my family cannot afford for me to leave home for a couple days.
Money is tight (I am on a scholarship in a rich private school) and I can never afford to go out with girls my age and just be a normal teenager. But there is something called Rage or Matric vac happening and it is my dream to go. It's my last chance to be with my friends and just have fun instead of my current cycle of lawyers, school and depression.
Please if you are able to, please may you help me. I know you can spend your money on so many other causes but if you could help me recover a little by making my dream come true, I would appreciate it so very much.
(btw I can't upload any pictures of my real face for safety reasons)
