Laurie Katz has always been a city girl. She thrived during her childhood in Boston, MA, and was all set to explore new places, beginning with her college experience in Chicago. Just three weeks in, however, that college experience took a sinister turn.

What had started as a fun night out ended with Laurie alone in her dorm room, struggling to even think about what had happened ... she had been sexually assaulted.

Laurie set out to get justice against her attacker, but it wasn't that simple. Dismissed by the Resident Assistant at college, failed by the dean of students, and warned that she was facing expulsion from her course, Laurie was running out of options - and then her attacker filed his own case.

About the Author

Laurie is an elementary teacher from Boston, Massachusetts who spent her undergraduate years studying early childhood education, then completed a Master's in Education. Her educational background has honed her empathy, adaptability, and human development skills. Her life was thrown into turmoil at 18 when she was raped on her third weekend of college. After being told not to go to the police, she navigated her university's hearing process and was silenced.

She struggled in silence for years, on the brink of suicide, until she was finally able to get help. Through therapy she has accepted that what happened was not her fault and that her life has value. She is passionate about ending sexual assault on college campuses and elsewhere, and helping to expand the conversation on helpful services for survivors. She is now ready to share her own story and help others in the process.
