CHARLOTTE, N.C. - March 8, 2018 - PRLog -- Today is International Women's Day and it's a day where women all over the world are celebrated for their knowledge, wisdom, being fearless, forward thinking and more. This is also the day that Brittney Bogues, daughter of NBA Legend Muggsy Bogues (Charlotte Hornets) was highlighted in The Charlotte Observer about her overcoming Domestic Violence. Her resilience and strength is illustrated throughout the entire article and Brittney hopes it will give someone the courage to walk away from any abusive relationship.

Brittney's story first went viral Summer 2017 when she penned an op-ed for The Huffington Post about her experience of abuse in a previous relationship. This was the first time Brittney had gone public with her story, and even though it was tough to relive certain moments, she was contacted by many who were inspired by her transparency.

Her interview with The Charlotte Observer sheds light on Brittney the woman, but also how she overcame Domestic Violence and now becoming an advocate.  She also speaks about the actual trauma, how she had to explain the situation to her Father and family, how she was able to remove herself from the toxic situation and more. She spoke with Veteran reporter Rick Bonnell who has been reporting for 20 years and took an interest in Brittney's story as she is a native to Charlotte. Brittney's hope is to become an inspiration and to also show that just because you're well known and provided certain luxuries in life, doesn't mean it will shield you from the ugliness that exists in the world.

When asked about being highlighted in the coveted Charlotte Observer, Brittney states, "We are often told as women by society how we should look or act, especially women of color. I was tired of holding on to a secret because of embarrassment or backlash for my famous father so I reached a point where I decided to make the choice and speak out against domestic violence. Too many women are in the same situation as I was so I want to be a light of hope and inspiration--that you are not defined by one moment but rather how you thrive in your next chapter. I am grateful for Rick and The Observer for highlighting this epidemic and giving me the platform to share my story.  I want women to take back their voice and power to come together to change the world."

In addition to speaking out about Domestic Violence and how it is terrorizing so many communities these days, Brittney also speaks on her life's passion, deciding to chose you, finding your voice and more.
