A woman took to social media to share her story with the hope to inspire others in honour of #SuicideAwarenessWeek.
A social media user, who has been identified as Makhumalo (@MantoKaBaba) shared her heartbreaking story on Twitter and it is clear she has been through a lot.
Although it is hard for most victims of sexual and emotional abuse to speak up, she was the voice of those who are too weak to share their own stories.
Makhumalo wrote, "I went to see a doctor and psychologist once I wanted to jumped over my balcony at Res. After surviving [Sexual assault], emotional abuse, a miscarriage and diagnosis of PCOS. I am trying and fighting. I will make it again."
Despite all the bad things that happened to her, Makhumalo managed to pick herself up and push forward- she even obtained her higher education qualification and her story inspired tweeps, Briefly.co.za gathered.

Makhumalo went on to thank tweeps's for their words of encouragement.
She wrote, "I want to thank everyone for their kind, inspiring and thoughtful words. 2018 has been a difficult year for me. I appreciate your words."
