This is my story – one that inspires

20 years I stayed silent. Not because I had nothing to say, but because I was told I would die if I did.

Having barely escaped with my life after an attempted murder and horrific acts of domestic abuse and sexual violence, plus two failed forced marriage attempts, all committed by the people I was meant to trust, my own parents, I stand here today proud to have taken back the voice that was so viciously stolen from me.

My name is Raj Holness, and from fearful victim to fearless victor, I am a Survivor.

This is my story – one that I hope inspires both women and men to come forward and break their own silence.
