I was sexually assaulted during my first week of college. From the moment I reported, I never felt believed or what happened to me mattered. I remember when the Chief of Police reached out and said she wanted to meet in person. I was relieved she was a woman. I thought, this will be like …

The morning I called 9-1-1 following my sexual assault, I had no idea what was in store. Thankfully, the responders believed me, and that made all the difference.
