This is Sabrina Prioli’s first book. In it, she covers the main events that happened over ten years of her life. These include the nightmare of the earthquake in L’Aquila, her years in South America coordinating development projects, and her trip to war-torn South Sudan. There, she was the victim of a brutal assault inside the compound where she was staying.
Despite the deep scars she carries inside her, Sabrina has found the strength and courage to become the voice of millions of victims of abuse, undertaking a long, ongoing struggle to find justice.
Rise up, phoenix uses a spontaneous, unadorned style to explore how we can cope with adversity in a positive way, summoning the resources that we all have within ourselves to be reborn from the ashes, every single time, like the phoenix itself.
