As a social activist, Azelene is determined to make a positive impact on individuals and in communities.
Originally from South Africa, Azelene lived in the Middle East before settling in Perth, Western Australia in 2011 with her husband and daughter.
As a teenager, after experiencing three and a half years of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her boyfriend (her first romantic relationship), Azelene came out a much stronger person whose life’s ambition as an activist, in the field of domestic and family violence, is to have a positive impact on both today’s and future generations.
Azelene’s message to men, women and children who are touched by domestic and family violence is:
- “Do not ignore the warning signs
- Speak up and never lose hope
- Somewhere out there, there is always someone you can trust, who will listen and who will believe you.
- Be kind to yourself
- Get help and get out!
- There is NO excuse for any form of abuse
- Violence and abuse in an intimate partner or personal relationship are NOT your fault
- The person abusing you is doing it because they chose to do so. It’s not because they were triggered by anything you said or did.
- I know it’s scary to leave and I know it’s dangerous. However, with the right support, you will get through it”.
