By making this decision, your heart will free itself of a heavy burden, and this will be the beginning of a new life, the beginning of your renaissance. How do you do it?
Carine is a Canadian citizen originally from Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. She was born in 1983 to a catholic family of four children. She is the first child and the only girl. With a heart of a lamb, and her unconditional love and care for the others, she has encountered numerous people that used her emotionally, traumatized her, bullied her, ruined her reputation, sexually assaulted her and physically abused her from the very young age of four. As a result, she has long had difficulties trusting friends, bonding with people, socializing, struggling with suicide, fear for everything, and low self-esteem. Throughout intense pain from her past, her dark side that she tried to run away from, and she attempted to forget the past; but she couldn’t. Finally, she revealed all of her troubled past to her now husband, Kuzi Mapish and her young brother Eric. Both of them helped her through encouragement to speak and spread the story that others could relate to; perhaps help others in need.
Dirty Sex Crime is a book written by Carine Mapish who relates her story to other victims. The purpose of the book is to help others to come along and talk publicly about their trauma and speak the truth. It doesn’t matter the religion you take part in, no matter your race and culture; when you have been or you are a victim of rape, sexual harassment, molestation, and all other subject related to such crime, you have to talk about it.
“While it may first appear to be the best thing to do, suffering in silence not only deprives yourself of a life, but it allows your attacker to ruin the lives of others,” admits Mapish. “By naming them and going public with your abuse, you help yourself and others who could become like you. My book fuses my own life story with inspiration for others to open a dialogue about their adversity.”
Continuing, “But I understand that it isn’t easy – and that’s why I have worked diligently to relate my story to others. Deciding to come forward about abuse is one of the hardest things anyone will do and I know that nobody takes the decision lightly. I do hope, however, to become the driving force victims need to come out of their shadows and rise from the ashes. By exposing your own abuse you’ll also save the lives of others, believe me.”
