After experiencing sexual assault in her industry at a young age multiple times. Unfortunately, till this day, it’s unclear to many people what consent means. She was raped two times before her twenties, and it made her stronger than her younger self could ever believe. Too young and too ashamed, she began to write her deepest, scariest thoughts down. She had lost her voice for too many years….she lost herself, but she was not destroyed. Thanks to her poems, she was renewed. Vulnerable, stripped to her soul, she shares a piece of Anja, a voice to maybe help find your own. A voice to begin your healing too.
“I want to thank everyone who supported me in my process of healing. Who gave me love support. And mostly didn’t judge me when I opened up. I hope this book gives you strength to find your voice, knowing that with speaking up we can help each other.”
My name is Anja Leuenberger and I was born in Switzerland. When I was fourteen years young I was discovered as a model. I’ve always wanted to travel the world. I was shy and introverted because I was bullied in school. So, when the opportunity occurred, I took it. Signed a contract with my first agency. I’ve finished school and worked as a business women before full time traveling the world. I had a rough start in the industry, I was insecure and took every opinion personal. I am 27 now, living in New York and happy to say that I’ve had a very successful career already. Through this industry I learned to speak up and set boundaries for myself. Now that I made myself a name, I felt called to use it for more.
