Hello, thanks for visiting! My name is Barbara Swint and I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I established Still Standing as a way to encourage, inspire, uplift, and to let other survivors know that there’s healing after trauma. You are not alone and you are still standing!
My debut book, "Still Standing" is my testimonial memoir. In it, I reveal my sexual assault experiences and the steps I took to overcome. Such steps that you too can take and overcome any obstacles at any time of your life.
