Azelene is an engaging presenter. Throughout Azelene’s sessions, she draws on her personal experience as a survivor of intimate partner violence as a teenager.

In her lived experience presentation, she talks about key concepts, theory and different forms of abuse and connects them to her lived experience.

She explains the cycle of abuse in-depth and presents her speech to the audience with a passion you can feel in the room.

All presentations conclude with an open question time, where the audience has the opportunity, and are encouraged, to ask questions that will assist them to further understand intimate partner violence.
