Angela Rose, Sexual Assault Survivor, on A&E’s I Survived…

April 4, 2012

What would you do if you were confronted with death? What gives someone the strength to survive? Is it luck, chance, instinct?

Angela Rose, CAMPUSPEAK speaker on the issue of sexual violence, is a survivor. At the age of 17, Angela was abducted at knifepoint outside a suburban Chicago shopping mall. She was assaulted by a repeat sex-offender on parole for murder—and was eventually released by her attacker. Angela shares her story through her nonprofit PAVE (Promoting Awareness for Victim Empowerment), across college campuses and now on A&E Bio Channel’s television show I Survived…

In a stripped-down, simple interview style, I Survived… allows survivors to explain, in their own words, how they overcame unbelievable circumstances—offering insight into what got them through the experience that changed their lives forever.

Angela’s episode premiers on the Bio Channel on Sunday, April 15 at 9 pm EST. Tune in for an personal account of her experiences and how she is now helping other victims get their voice back. Visit The Bio Channel to learn more.

Think of Angela this April for Sexual Assault Awareness month and for Campus Safety Awareness month in September for programming that will get your students empowered to make changes within their own communities.
