Depths Of My Soul: Author Anja Leuenberger

Author Poet AnjaMy name is Anja Leuenberger and I was born in Switzerland. When I was fourteen years young I was discovered as a model. I’ve always wanted to travel the world. I was shy and introverted because I was bullied in school. So, when the opportunity occurred, I took it. Signed a contract with my first agency. I’ve finished school and worked as a business women before full time traveling the world. I had a rough start in the industry, I was insecure and took every opinion personal. I am 27 now, living in New York and happy to say that I’ve had a very successful career already. Through this industry I learned to speak up and set boundaries for myself. Now that I made myself a name, I felt called to use it for more.

I have experienced sexual assault in my industry at a young age multiple times. Unfortunately, till this day, it’s unclear to people what consent means. I was raped two times before my twenties, and it made me stronger than my younger me could ever believe. I was young,  I was too ashamed. So, I started to write my deepest, scariest thoughts down. I lost my voice for years. I lost myself. So here I am, thanks to my poems. Vulnerable, stripped to my soul, giving you a piece of me, my voice to find yours. To start your healing too. I want to thank everyone who supported me in my process of healing. Who gave me love support. And mostly didn’t judge me when I opened up. I hope this book gives you strength to find your voice, knowing that with speaking up we can help each other.
