8. K. Michelle
Although some people have doubted K. Michelle’s story, the reality star and singer stands by her truth.
“I had people send me hate, send me Tweets and do things to me, like I was the one who did it to myself,” she said. “I think a lot of women don’t tell their story, and men, just because you don’t know what people are going to say to you. And more and more, women are coming forward. And I think, if you go through that, you have to use it to help other people. You have to be strong.”
Today, she has a partnership with the Saving Our Daughters nonprofit.
