My Recent Trip to NYC

If you've never been to New York City, there's only one word to describe it- crammed. Everywhere you turn there are people within exremely close distance. Walking down the street is constant bumping and swerving through human traffic.

This weekend, whilst on a school trip, we were walking through a severely congested crosswalk on our way to dinner. That's when I felt it- someone's hand grabbing my bum. My boyfriend was walking in front of me, allowing for fear to wreak open onslaught upon my mind, knowing his wasn't the hand on my body. I turned in an attempt to find the source, but there were too many people. 

Obviously, I was quite shaken for the rest of the night, my mind running non-stop in attempt to process the event. Once I began to feel a bit better, I felt ready to tell my teacher. Upon telling him he told me to, "Shake it off and take it as a compliment."

Nonetheless, I tried my best to enjoy the rest of the trip despite these events. I am still quite shaken but I am coming to terms with it.

    I am so sorry that happened to you Sydney. NO man should put his hand on a woman when it's not wanted. @Azita Tsosaika 23 wrote an excellent piece about not accepting cat calls of any kind: https://onmogul.com/stories/i-decided-to-speak-up

      Sorry about that Sydney. That happened to me when I used to model. It's a shock to the system and you responded quite naturally. I'm still fighting street harassment here in NYC. I got catcalled by an 8 year old, I lectured him big time. I'm printing out some phrases from this page and will hand out to ignorant men. http://www.safernyc.org/
