When Erin Merryn was 6 years old, she never thought what happened to her then, would bring her to the Mississippi.
“I used to carry so much shame about this. I never wanted to talk about it. It was a dirty uncomfortable topic,” said Merryn.
Until age eight, she was sexually abused at the hands of a neighbor. Then from age 11 until 13, it was at the hands of a cousin.
