Survivors Who Changed the World

Even amidst fierce flames, the golden lotus can be planted.

Victims become survivors, and survivors can become leaders. Survivors in History is a study on those who have survived, thrived, and changed the world. Each post in this series will highlight a person who has not only survived, but gone on to shape history and change the world in one way or another.

Those featured in this series are not all necessarily survivors of sexual abuse, but all have survived and overcome some sort of trauma. The goal of this series is to give hope and inspire other survivors, and to demonstrate that those of us who have been through hell tend to be much stronger than we think.
