Because I Was Abused


Because I Was Abused details the life and mindset of a child sexually abused from the age of 5. Surrounded by violence, the author shares her reality around growing up in Guam where she became part of a generational cycle of physical, mental, and emotional abuse, surviving it all to tell her truth and share how she overcame each hurt to become the empowered woman she is today.


This is a powerful read from start to finish.

Because I Was Abused’ is a courageous and honest first-hand account of child abuse in all of its most vile incarnations, and the eventual triumph of good over evil. Romecca Sawers’ life spiralled out of control as an inevitable consequence of years of enduring physical, sexual, mental and emotional abuse at the hands of the very people who should have protected her. Her story takes us to places few of us can imagine, however she shows us that healing and redemption are possible through self-love, perseverance, professional guidance, and the love and support of family.  Now healed, Romecca reaches out to others to expose the horror that is child abuse, to put an end to it, and to remove the shame surrounding it. Confronting, absorbing and uplifting, ‘Because I was Abused’ is a must-read for anyone wanting to better understand child abuse and the long-term effects it has on the child victim, and how the journey from victim, to survivor, to advocate, is possible.”
