"I definitely see myself as an activist; very headstrong, very determined, very persistent. This field [relationship violence] has always been pushed back by every community and finally some are being more open to it. I've always taken on challenges, and I like challenges. Maybe that's why I've taken on the Jewish community; because it's such a challenge, and also because I'm involved in it, so it affects me. But I definitely see myself as very active in equality between men and women. I'm more analytical about, and conscious of, relationships I see around me. Mutual respect in a relationship is key. I can recognize who is potentially an abuser when I see couples interacting."
