  1. Wow oh WOW! I had to put my phone down for a moment to articulate my thoughts after what I’d just heard. Watched.

    Thank you for being vulnerable with your story and telling it so profoundly. You are a victor no doubt. May your torch shine bright, intensely. I truly celebrate you Efe.

    The world needs to keep hearing this and fight the root of it. We profer good home training to our little boys so they don’t become Uncle Ps.
    And not to forget the wisdom and Character of God in Salvation.

  3. I felt a frightening chill throughout this story, and I can’t imagine how many people have this same story but can’t tell it. Thank you Efe, I’m sure you’ve started a thread!

  4. Efe your story resonates with far too many women and girls whose voices and stories have been hidden and suppressed. I commend your courage in telling your story.
