Jennifer Simpson

Cst. Jennifer Simpson is a hero in my life. She helped me to see that no one can ruin my life. I had no self-esteem. I was in a major depression. While lying in bed all day for months after what happened to me, Cst. Simpson's kind words at our interview played in my mind. Now that I am finally recovering, I realize Cst. Simpson saved my life. In this age of #MeToo and speaking openly about mental health, I feel she symbolizes the type of empathy and encouragement that saves many victims from the impact of cruelty. Cst. Simpson did not have to save my life by endangering her own - she just had to care about me as a person.
