Monika moved from Norway to Dallas, Texas, with a track scholarship from Southern Methodist University. But her life took at tragic turn when, during her sophomore year, she was kidnapped at gunpoint and brutally raped by three men. Monika survived and assisted with the convictions of her assailants and turned tragedy into healing. She founded the Monika Korra Foundation. Its mission: to Kill the Silence surrounding rape and abuse and make it possible for survivors to seek the help they need for complete healing. Monika’s book, of the same name “Kill the Silence,” was recently released.
The Julie Valentine Center of Greenville is a nonprofit organization that provides free, confidential services to sexual assault and child- abuse survivors and their families. The center depends on the local individuals, organizations and businesses for financial help to provide these essential services, for the betterment of the entire community.
