    Edit Photo Details Rape survivor helps women in Yemen  
    Tete Jesinta was raped four times between the ages of 4 and 20. Now, she is committed to using her experience to help other women recover from the trauma of sexual violence. Tete said, "I believe God allowed this to happen to me, so I could use my experience to help other women." Now, Tete leads women's protection programming for the International Rescue Committee in war-torn Yemen.

    This portrait is elegant and timeless in nature but what builds more of this woman's story is in your caption. I learn her name, Tete Jesinta, the traumas she has lived through and her commitment to protecting women from sexual violence in Yemen. While I might not know all of that information from her portrait alone, I do see a dignified, elegant woman with a gentle strength that transcends the frame. Beautifully done, Kellie.
