You will learn:

  • How Anu uses her life experiences to improve the lives of others.
  • About some unique challenges Anu faced as a woman in the United Kingdom experiencing abuse, and how her Indian culture added unique challenges to speaking out about her own victimization.
  • Ways in which coping mechanisms can morph into hobbies and skills that transcend the crisis period.
