“As a victim of sexual assault, I’ve experienced that sense of helplessness... Until I realized that I had a way to fight back!” said Byrd.

Now, with the help of Crescent House, Taymika hopes to build awareness through an incredible adventure tale where the hero grapples with the trauma of sexual assault.

The Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN (https://www.rainn.org/statistics)), sites that there are over 230,000 sexual assaults each year in America, an average of one assault every two minutes.
