I'm so excited, but a little nervous about starting my first podcast. I believe we don't talk enough about certain issues and some we give to much attention. My objective is to enlighten those who don't know the signs and statistics of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and maternal health care issues. Telling the stories of those who have been traumatized and victimized, and just bringing together those professionals who can shed some light on these issues and help heal an bring about awareness and prevention. I hope you will join me weekly as we discuss these and other topics on Telling You're Stories With Trina. Listen on Spotify.
