Survivor Ted Talk – Real Life Domestic Abuse Story link

  • This speech is based on the Domestic Violence video that has been viewed over 50 million times and the aftermath of her assault.
  • Emma is now focusing on the positive impact these developments have had in her life. Emma Murphy is a 28-year-old fitness blogger and single mother of two.
  • In 2015, she faced repeated domestic battery from her ex-boyfriend and father of her children. After one such incident that left her with a black eye, she decided to take to social media, where she posted a vulnerable video of herself telling the world about the abuse, deceit, lies and betrayal she was going through.
  • In doing so, she consciously turned the terror of being a victim into a positive situation, refusing to let domestic violence diminish or define her as a person.
  • Emma is now a Domestic Violence Advocate, travelling the world to raise awareness for women and children who cannot speak for themselves.
