"If anything like that happens to me I know I don't have to be scared to tell my mom or dad. Thank you. - Middle School Student
"We must state that the presentation for Project Roar was initially of concern because of the delicate nature of the topic as it had never really been approached previously. Jessica represented a voice for child safety and students felt very comfortable with her presentation. They were totally attentive throughout the presentation and actively engaged in the discussion that followed. The feedback from students and staff was very positive and we have highly recommended the presentation to other schools and groups.
An aspect that really resonated with the audience was that Jessica saw herself as a survivor rather than a victim of child abuse. This, we find paramount in our efforts to build resiliency in our students. She demonstrated that it is OK to disclose, so that the healing can take place. We are sure that this had a huge impact on the audience." - Middle School Principal
