Connecting Stories: Married at 14 – Part I

This week Miriam is sharing an interview she had with Ify Bamigboye on her Podcast Connecting Stories. I share my story about overcoming childhood and inter-generational trauma, emotional, mental, and sexual abuse. This is the first time I share my story in full, I tend to rush through my story but Ify has this way of helping her guests tell their story and I thank her for it. Ify is a guest on this podcast too, episode 8.
