"This thesis is a memoir about my encounter with domestic violence. I was a teenager when I started dating a man who slowly ruined my life with manipulation, aggression, and both, physical and mental abuse. I chose to make this my thesis because I want people to understand that going through such trauma does not mean life itself is over. My abuser made me feel worthless, and there were often times when I considered taking my own life because of him. However, after seeking help, both from my family and professionally, I was able to escape him, build myself back up and move on. I want my thesis to remind others that life may seem unbearable at times, but through strength and perseverance, change is possible." -- Abstract
