ellie

Head of Media Team

Hi I’m Ellie and I’ve recently graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a degree in Criminology and Cybercrime! I decided to join the media team for Say it Loud as I believe that we need to open up a discourse on sexual violence to help validate people’s individual experiences so that they know they’re not alone and they can reach out for help. Listening to victims’ experiences and validating them is such an important step in the fight to eradicate sexual violence.

Blogger

Hi! My names Tamika and I am a blogger for Say It Loud. I am currently studying Sociology at UWE Bristol. Being an abuse survivor myself, I understand first hand the lack of support for survivors. As well as this, I also understand the lack of education for others around rape culture, sexual violence and feminist ideology. It is amazing to be a part of a team that supplies support to individuals who have experienced similar situations as myself and I am very excited to educate people on the importance of supporting sexual abuse victims.

libbie

Support Mentor

Hi, my name is Libbie and I’m a support mentor at say it loud. I’ve recently finished a degree in criminology! My degree has taught me about the failures of the criminal justice system in dealing with victims of sexual violence, as well as the victimisation of women and the victim-blaming mentality that is so ripe within our society. It is so important that more discourse is created about sexual violence, most importantly to support victims, but also so society can work toward abolishing it. Say it loud’s work is so necessary as it provides a safe, confidential and informal place for victims to talk about their feelings and experience. I am passionate about supporting victims so I can enable them to get one step closer to healing.

Support Mentor

Hi I’m Char and I am a support mentor for Say It Loud. I am also currently taking a Diploma training course to become a qualified ISVA (Independent Sexual Violence Advocate). I am very passionate about advocating for survivors, speaking up against misogyny and rape culture and working towards much-needed change in ways to tackle sexual violence in society. So I am very proud to be part of a wonderful team of like-minded individuals here at Say It Loud. As a sexual assault survivor, I know first hand how incredibly challenging it is to navigate life after trauma, alongside the often additional re-trauma of the criminal justice system. I really want to be able to use my experience and training to support fellow survivors in their own journeys towards healing.

Sasha

Media Team

Hey, I’m Sasha, I’m 21 and I’m super excited to be joining the media team for Say It Loud! I’ve just finished my degree in psychology and my time at university taught me a lot about the lack of support for victims of sexual violence, which made me deeply passionate about doing something to help. Say It Loud was and is a really important resource for me and a great thing to direct friend towards, whether they were victims themselves or want to know how to help others. I already feel very lucky to be part of this brilliant and supportive team and am looking forward to working with them.
