vanessa guillen Story
"Sexual violence is just like a virus that does not discriminate race gender & personal beliefs. That’s why now it’s considered an epidemic in the armed forces.”
Vanessa Guillen, born and raised in Houston,Tx. September 30th 1999. Daughter, sister, soldier.
Vanessa was second oldest of six siblings. Her favorite hobbies were running track, cross country and playing soccer. Vanessa was the most humble loving person that loved helping others. She attended Cesar E Chavez High School where she then decided to join the US ARMY. Vanessa was a brave young girl that pursued a career in the military as she wanted to protect her family and country. Unfortunately Vanessa’s career lasted no more than two years of service. Vanessas life was brutally taken away by another soldier, her supposed to be “brother in arms”. Those that were to protect her, failed her. There is now a movement under her name that will provide reform in the military. The I am Vanessa Guillen Act. Her life was taken unjustly. She is now missed deeply by her family, friends, and the nation itself. We need #JusticeforVanessaGuillen.
September 30th 1999 - April 22nd 2020. You’re missed and loved deeply.
