Here is what she said;

“I hate it when people come and say this thing happened to you; why are you just talking about it now.  Bouqui, it has happened to me, I don’t say this anywhere, I have never said this before, it has happened to me, it wasn’t rape, it was molestation, by someone who was supposed to be related to me.”
She continued;

“I was eight years old, I couldn’t talk about it for years because it traumatized me, nobody knew; I was dealing with it myself.

Why couldn’t I talk, I knew what happened to others who had spoken up about it, they were disgraced; if you see the shame, even in school, once the word got out, it was about her being a prostitute even as young as we were, they would call you names, so man as seen you?”

In the latter part of the session, Damasus stated;

Man has touched you?  It’s not about what you’re going through, at the end of the day you spend years dealing with your trauma and we are not in a society that believes in “oh! Go and see a therapist to talk about it for counseling,” said Damasus.


Stella Damasus revealed that she has since healed after going for counseling.
