TEDxChristchurch: I grew up in a cult. It was heaven — and hell.
I was born and raised in the Gloriavale Christian Community on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, where I was constantly surrounded by everyone I loved. But over time, I began to see the dark side of my community, and ultimately realised I had to get out. In this raw and emotional talk, I share the reality of life in a cult, and my heart-wrenching journey to break free.
