A CRICCIETH woman who bravely spoke out over her own abuse ordeal has appeared as a guest speaker at an exhibition to help other victims.

In 2015, Nesdi Aneurin Jones, bravely waived her anonymity and told the Cambrian News of the abuse she suffered, at only seven years old, at the hands of paedophile Bob Owen, of Penrhyndeudraeth, who has now been sentenced to 14 years in prison.

Since speaking out, Nesdi says she has had an incredible response and has been contacted by several victims of sexual abuse who want to speak out and report their abuse to the police.

The young singer was recently invited down to Cardiff with The Survivor’s Trust Cymru (TST) which is the charity responsible for bringing The Wall of Silence exhibition to the Welsh capital.

The Wall of Silence exhibition is a unique event which not only highlights child abuse, its impact and the suffering this causes, but also the sheer determination and doggedness of those affected in trying to overcome the aftermath of that abuse.

Nesdi, a former Ysgol Ardudwy pupil, said she was honoured to be a guest speaker at the exhibition.
