Lena was raped at a college party and says she retreated from her social life after the incident. She commented: ”I didn’t really go to anymore parties. I basically didn’t have a drink for the rest of college… I really removed myself from that world. I don’t know if I would’ve told you at the time, ‘Oh, I’m doing this to keep myself safe,’ but obviously in hindsight… I basically removed myself from the social world as I’d known it. It was a painful experience physically and emotionally, and one I spent a long time trying to reconcile. At the time that it happened, it wasn’t something that I was able to be honest about. I was able to share pieces, but I sort of used the lens of humour, which has always been my default mode, to try to talk around it.”
