A teen who received a protective order-
(In reference to coming to Texas Advocacy Project as a teenager needing a Protective Order against her abusive boyfriend.) I feel that my family and myself are safer. I no longer want to be in that [dangerous] position and I don't want to be scared of someone who is supposed to love me. I just want to say that my attorney Bronwyn is my hero, she is the best, and if I can I would like to tell my story & encourage other teens to do and make the right decision.
