I am a really empathetic, sensitive person, and I always have been,” Stodden told Fox News Digital. “But my experience has made me so strong.

If it didn’t happen, I feel like my whole outlook on life would be so different. Experiences that are traumatizing can either break us or we can utilize them to shape us into a stronger individual. And that’s really one of the main reasons why I’m speaking out is because I want past victims and survivors to really tap into that part of themselves. We are so strong.

It’s just really made me very fearless.
