Advocate's past helps her reach abuse victims

There are so many us that can be advocates becasue we have been there--we are each other's family and best freinds--some of us go professinal but most just reach out to the others behind us--Krystal is an inspiration to all of us--read her story:

Advocate's past helps her reach abuse victims: "Now enrolled in graduate school at Seattle University, she works as a legal advocate for mothers and children at a south King County domestic violence shelter. Her own experience is a powerful reminder about how children are affected by domestic violence, she says.

Counseling through Youth Eastside Services is an equally powerful reminder of how important another voice can be in helping a child cope with the emotional trauma of domestic violence, she says.

It's why she speaks out on behalf of the group whenever she gets the opportunity."
