What a difference a year makes. I’ve spent the last one thinking a lot about the world and my place in it. It’s given me a new appreciation for the art of connection—how we express ourselves, how we keep in touch with people, how we tell our own stories. To find a way forward, I began by looking back, and gained a new perspective. I’m excited to share it with you in ways that reflect the real me. Cheers to new beginnings.

THIS IS PARIS DOCUMENTARY
MEET THE REAL ME

MY NEW CHALLENGE: CREATING CHANGE
MAKING AN IMPACT
In the This Is Paris documentary, I revealed the abuse I experienced as a 17-year-old at Provo Canyon School. Confronting the enduring effects of trauma—from nightmares to trust issues—and uniting with fellow survivors helped me to find a new focus. As part of the Breaking Code Silence movement, I’m using my voice to expose and prevent institutional child abuse. The silence stops here.
A Peaceful, But Powerful Gathering in Provo - 10/09/20
I worked with the Breaking Code Silence movement to organize a peaceful gathering at Provo Canyon School, the school I attended for 11 months. Hundreds of others who had similar experiences of abuse joined us. We stood in solidarity together as a community of survivors and on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of youth currently in residential care. It was my first time back there since I left the school and I felt like I had started to deliver on the promise I made to myself to ensure youth in these facilities are safe.
Joining Forces - 11/10/20
Breaking Code Silence joins forces with the International Coalition against Restraint and Seclusion and the Alliance Against Restraint and Seclusion, organizations that advocate for the elimination of restraint and seclusion on youth.
Breaking Code Silence Reveals Breach of Ethics - 12/02/20
Breaking Code Silence leaked an audio recording of an internal National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP) meeting that detailed them recommending programs to skirt Disability Law Center record requests for investigative and protection purposes.
Accepted into Social Justice Accelerator - 12/04/20

Legislation Introduced In Utah - 01/25/21
Utah Senate member Mike McKell introduces legislation in Utah. Sen. McKell contacted me immediately after the Provo gathering last October. He told me he wanted to reform the Troubled Teen Industry due to the clear lack of oversight and accountability on behalf of these programs. At the same time, State Senator Sara Gelser introduces legislation in Oregon and Missouri State Representative Keri Ingle leads legislation to license religious programs in the state.
Paris Testifies In Utah - 02/08/21
I testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on behalf of Senator Mike McKell’s Bill 127 that increases program inspections, restricts cruel and unusual punishment such as seclusion and restraint, ensures unmonitored communication with family, and more. After hearing from myself, Caroline Lorson, and Jeff Netto, the Committee unanimously voted to pass this landmark piece of legislation in Utah.
