Hi! I am Tara Alston, the author of award-winning book, Yet Still I Stand!
Most do not initially look at me and realize what I have been through. That is because I have been given the opportunity to heal, grow and thrive. Not everyone has the support needed to do so.
In my book, I share my story and provide tools and resources so that other survivors can also be intentional about their healing process. Healing from trauma occurs in the midst of a community who cares. You are not alone, and you can heal and thrive even after what you have been through.
Even if you are not personally a survivor, you likely know someone who is. This book may be the door that opens in order to start someone on their healing journey.

"As a child, I experienced things no child should experience, and everything was a secret. I was threatened to keep it as such while I endured sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and at times, physical abuse and was the victim of exploitation through child sexual abuse material. Secrets like these hold the victims captive and keep the abusers free.
Once I was finally free, another abuser quickly took advantage of my vulnerabilities. I went from abuse to abuse, which is not uncommon. I was beaten, raped, threatened at gunpoint, and controlled.
I was able to escape abuse and find safety. I was intentional about my healing process and had support along my healing journey.
I am sharing my story to be an encouragement to others and then to provide a space for their healing and growth."
