My name is Nyiemä & I am a young Trans girl living Chicago, IL. Recently, I was assaulted by a man who attempted to murder me by running me over with his car because did not accept his advances . Luckily, I survived, but I sustained serious injuries & broken bones along the upper & lower parts of the left side of my body & fractures to lower right (9 places altogether). I have undergone surgeries for these ligament extremities & am still being hospitalized. Soon I will undergo months of physical therapy to hopefully regain mobility of my limbs. I cannot even begin to describe the amount of trauma & economic stress I have experienced as a black Trans woman in the past few weeks. I would like nothing more than to heal from this situation & return to a life of love and authenticity. However, I know this is just another trial in my journey towards unwavering truth in the face of violence & bigotry against women like me. I am currently seeking ways to enhance & ensure my protection as I navigate this violence. Right now, owning car is a major priority, as it will facilitate safety & reduction of interactions with men in public spaces possibly endangering my life. My goal for purchasing a car is $8,000 so that when I heal I will be able . I am asking for donations in whatever capacity you can give. I would greatly appreciate this, as it would allow me a life of safety & accessibility to some degree. Please share & give as you can. I appreciate you. Thank you.
