I was lucky enough to meet Tamara almost three years ago and have watched her go from being a young lady who was shy and quiet, to someone brave enough to stand up in front of an audience and share the story of her personal struggle with domestic abuse. She has confided in me that this still terrifies her, but the point is, she keeps accepting the invitations. A talk she recently gave at Sacramento City College was featured in the school paper.
