“Role playing was very valuable (especially in getting a bigger voice out of my quiet one) and also it was great to practice the defensive moves. I thought we could have done more of that ? there was a lot of dialogue which was helpful too but for me practicing something ingrains it in my brain more. The one thing that really stuck with me was walking around the car to create space between me and my possible attacker. I do feel I recognize when I’m not walking big. I correct my stance more to walk taller and keep my hands by side more when I’m out and about by myself. So I’m ready!”
