 It's a message she was glad to have a chance to share.

"So many people have been saying to me, you are so lucky," she said. "I wish I could trade lives with you. At the end of the day, I was there because I was sexually abused as a child, and I don't wish that on anyone. But I am so happy to have this chance to speak out and have my story to inspire others to come forward."
