I was staring down the barrels of a shotgun. At that precise moment, I realized that I was not fully prepared to defend myself.
It was by the grace of God that I was able to get out of that situation. In other words, I was incredibly lucky. This near miss served as a stark reminder of my vulnerabilities. That was the moment I began my journey of self-defense and empowerment, determined to break through the barriers that society had placed before me and every other woman.
