Season 4 Episode 2 – Leah

On this week’s episode, I sit down with Leah Wynne. We had to put a trigger warning on this episode as Leah is a survivor of rape and domestic violence.

At just 17 years of age, Leah was raped and left with horrific injuries. We talk about the long-term effects this has had on her over the years and how years later seeking solace in what she thought would be a safe loving relationship she ended up being physically and mentally tortured.

Today Leah is married to her rock and has recently had life-changing gastric surgery and she tells me contrary to some beliefs, this was not an easy way out.

Leah thank you for speaking out and sharing your story I know it wasn’t easy I am so sorry this happened to you.
