This true story provides an authentic depiction of one woman’s journey through DV and its devastating emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual effects on an individual.
Beyond the negative experience that this woman endures through this disgusting act of human cruelty, through the tears, anger, cuts and bruises, this woman demonstrates the power of hope through her heroic courage and strength to come out on the other side.
Instead of succumbing to a life of anger, defeat, and lack of self-confidence, Ms. Gallardo demonstrates her leadership, her dedication to combatting the DV epidemic and the ability to empower other victims of this horrible crime to speak up – loud and proud.
Beyond the wonderful non-profit organization Sarah has created, called Sarah Speaks Up, she has cultivated a following – a tribe – of others who gravitate to her bravery through telling this story of hiding in plain sight.
“This story will serve as a guiding light to many – whether they are able and willing to share their story or suffering in silence. It is a story of hope, survival, and true human bravery with extraordinary leadership and resilience at its core.” ~ Morgan Ferrarotti
