(Episode Note: This episode contains discussions of rape and sexual trauma)
Madeleine Black has an unusual personal story that she uses to inspire and motivate others. She chose to forgive the two men who gang-raped her at thirteen years old and she shares her story for many reasons.
Madeleine wants to end the shame, stigma, and silence surrounding sexual violence enabling others to find their voice, whatever their story is. She wants people to know that it’s not what happens to us that is important but what we do with it. Madeleine is passionate about discussing how changing her mindset tapped into her resilience and transformed her life, making people question their own thinking and encouraging them to see that there are always choices to make, and if we choose to, we can get past anything that happens to us in life both professionally and in our personal life. She wants to encourage others to live their life courageously too; but ultimately she wants to inspire hope and show people that we are all so much stronger than we think we are.
Madeleine Balck is a 2x TEDx speaker, a psychotherapist, a podcaster, and an author. Madeline's memoir, Unbroken, was published on April 4th 2017.
