"Hi, my name is Vicki Peterson. My pronouns are she/her, I’m from California, and I am a Mighty Super Contributor."
"As a survivor of trauma, I write for The Mighty to reclaim my own voice and to let others know that they are not alone."
My favorite story I wrote for The Mighty...
"We're all going through collective traumas with the pandemic and political/social unrest, and I think a lot of people can relate to this."
"Why Trauma Survivors Shouldn’t Think They Are 'Lazy'"
"I can clap with one hand (really!), I home-brew wild elderberry wine, and I once got carried away on Ancestry.com and traced my family all the way back to Adam and Eve."
"I want other trauma survivors to know that your experience is valid and your voice matters, too."
Thanks to Vicki, and contributors like her, our Mighty community is what it is.
Thanks for sharing your story, Vicki!
