“I was born to exist
a soul with skin
I craved for love
when will it be in?
Torment, neglect, pain and shame
what is this fucked up game?
Endured sexual assault multiple times
who ends up paying for these crimes
– Roshee Taylor 2021
Roshee Taylor, 55, was subjected to neglect and sexual assault. The trauma led to her homelessness. Living in transitional housing now, she is using her experience to advocate for change and to help children and young people who may be in similar situations. During the activation of UNSEEN Rochelle will be performing singing songs about her experiences. In addition, she will be working with a group of children aged 7 to 13 to craft messages on paper dolls to homeless people, which will be placed on the tiny house. Rochelle believes this is a way she can help build awareness, reduce stigma and create a community of support through art.
