Hi smile.gif

My name is Annaleigh, and I'm a survivor of incest & sexual assault. I don't think I will be telling my story for a while, a lot of things are triggering me right now, and I have to be careful.

I'm a Tori Amos fan like a lot of you, but I love all kinds of music, especially heavy metal...Megadeth is my favorite band. I'm proud to call myself a feminist. I have been in the anti-violence against women & girls movement since I was a young teenager. smile.gif
