VirginiaTech: A Survivor's Perspective

Lisa Hamp shares her personal story during the April 16, 2017 Virginia Tech shooting, as well as her recovery afterwards. She describes how her class built a barricade to prevent the shooter from entering their classroom, as well as her struggle to return to a "normal" life during the weeks, months, and years that followed. She explains what made her eventually seek counseling after eight years and a variety of hard, but powerful lessons she has learned since that tragic day. Through her raw and emotional presentation, she provides a survivor's perspective on experiencing and recovering from a school shooting.
