Survivor of Childhood Trauma Speaks to Buckeye Middle School Students on how to Manage their Emotions


January 22, 2020 -- Columbus native, Teresa Carter Kizzie says she started journaling her feelings at a young age. Kizzie says journaling became therapeutic for her after she witnessed her father kill her mother at the age of eight.

Those writings eventually became a book, “The Journey With You” -- based on letters Kizzie wrote to her deceased mother as a young girl.

Kizzie shared her story with students at Buckeye Middle School, encouraging them to never give up on themselves despite their circumstances.
