“To envision, to create, to inspire positive social change!”

“Childhood sexual abuse kills a child’s spirit in childhood. The impact wounds and confuses the soul in teenage years. It wreaks havoc in relationships & ripples through the survivor’s life in the adult years. It destroys every area of life, leaving many unable to fully cope with it’s devastating impact. While some unhealthy messages in the mainstream about power, love, respect & sexuality only inspires more misunderstanding, confusion, pain and heartache. I want to change that by creating my own brand of music, books, public speaking engagements, songwriting workshops and live shows / tours that helps to draw awareness to the impact of trauma and childhood sexual abuse. I want to create music that can be a positive influence on at-risk youth and people all over the world. I want to use my personal experience, dealing with trauma and the impact of childhood sexual abuse to make a positive difference in the lives of people, all over the world.” – Ingrid D. Johnson –
