My name Yazz known to most as Ms Yazz ROAR, and I am a grateful recovering addict whose drug of choice is alcohol.“I am also the survivor of Domestic Violence.”
My very first boyfriend was a body building drug dealer. I wanted to end the relationship and he tried to kill me. He locked me in his house and threw me around like a ragdoll. I tried to fight back but he was very big and very strong. He held me down on the bed, put both hands around my neck and proceeded to choke me. I saw a glass out the corner of my eye and was able to hit him over the head and break free. I ran down the steps to the front door and realized he removed the key so I could not leave. I could not call 911 because he pulled the phone out the wall. Thank goodness the windows were open. A neighbor heard me screaming for help. She frantically rang the bell and saved my live.FREE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TRAINING CLASS Date: 5/18/2021 Time: 6:00pm-900:pm ROAR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE REFERRAL APPLICATION All entries with an (*) Asterisk must be filled out.
