Your Voice, Your Choice. A Story of Resiliency & Redemption


April Hernandez-Castillo is a committed and fierce activist in raising awareness about Intimate Partner and Teen dating violence. Your Voice, Your Choice is her candid first-person experience with Intimate Partner Violence. She opens up and shares her story in the hope of empowering others to speak up (or to leave) before it’s too late.

Your Voice, Your Choice goes back to the beginning and leads the reader through April’s life, tells about her positive upbringing in a Puerto Rican household nestled in the heart of the Bronx, and emphasizes the reliability of that inner voice everyone has.  As the reader learns what defined April’s voice, they are also asked to dive deep into themselves and decide what it is that is defining their own.  It’s their choice.
