Elaine Williams, “girl next door” had it all – the brains, the charm, and the talent to be drill team captain, a national honor society member, on the dean’s list, and involved in her choir and community. What she hid was she was also a victim of an emotional and sexual assault. Realizing it takes the same amount of energy to make yourself strong as it does to be miserable, Elaine started her journey to a healthy life. She shares her life story to raise addiction awareness as a college speaker and author.
