I had to sacrifice to love him

Hannah Slusher found herself pregnant at a young age. During the nine months, she also found God and forgiveness.

Hannah joined us during our NEON Festival collaboration with ViBe Story Exchange. The night featured storytelling with a creative twist. After telling their stories, the storytellers were followed by an artist presenting an interpretation of the story they just told. Sheena Jeffers followed Hannah with an interpretive dance.
