The Aftermath of Sexual Abuse with Neesha Arter

Neesha Arter

When Neesha Arter was fourteen years old, she was sexually assaulted by people she knew, people she had no reason to mistrust. In an effort to to reconcile feelings of guilt and shame and search for control in a seemingly unraveling world, she turned to anorexia. Ten years later, now an established journalist in New York City Neesha has written a powerful memoir that looks back with healing insight on the importance of speaking uncomfortable truths.

Don’t let them put you in a box. -Neesha
