I advise the UNCW One in Four Chapter because sexual assault and domestic violence are not solely a women's issue, Men have the power to empower and help those in need and this group is the first step for many men to stand against injustice and support those that they care about. I hold hope as a pivotal component of 1in4 becuase these young men are setting a new standard for what being a "Real Man" actually means and that truly empowering!

I am a member of One in Four because I have been given so much in this world and this is a way to give back.

Sexual assault is not an easy subject to talk about, but ignorance is not the way to handle it.

I am a member of One in Four because growing up I've always been big, tall and strong, and my parents instilled many values in me early on. One of those values has been the use of my strengths to help protect those near to me and those who cannot protect themselves. After hearing my first story of a victim who suffered through rape and physical abuse I wanted to do nothing more than protect her however, all her scars were internal. I joined One in Four so that they would teach me the signs of abuse and how to better aid victims come into terms with their past so that they can once again lead their normal lives.
