CURRENT WORK:

My name is Skyler Mechelle and I am a survivor leader and trauma educator. For the past seven years, I have been curating a practice of informing, inviting conversation, and writing about the prolific and complex adversities of sex trafficking and child sexual abuse.

Both publicly and professionally I share my eighteen years of abuse history and the privileged ways I have been able to choose mind, body, and soul healing. I provide education and training through workshops, podcasts, events, and written formats. I extend free resources, in forms of online courses, conversation, and belief, for other survivors.

THE FUTURE:

I returned to University last Summer, after a long hiatus, in order to partner my aforementioned commitments with an education. The hope is to one day obtain a PhD and become a professor, in order to turn my workshops into long-term courses. I also hope to learn more about how to sustain myself as I continue to extend free resources to those who need it. Everything I am privileged to study weaves itself into the work I currently provide and further informs me of how I can do it better.

HOW TO SUPPORT ME:

95% of what I do is free, but none of it comes without cost on my end. I am a full-time advocate, and a full-time student, without any other income. Every cent of support I receive provides me with the resources to the further my studies and continue committing to the sustainability of my work. Any and all extensions of support, both free and monetary, helps move my work forward.

Here are all the ways you can help.
