Kiss FM radio presenter Adelle Onyango has joined the semicolon movement.
Founded in 2013, Project Semicolon is an American mental health nonprofit organisation that primarily functions as an anti-suicide initiative.
The movement is characterized by a semicolon tattoo as a reminder of struggle, victory, and survival. It aims to “present hope and love to those who are struggling with depression, suicide, addiction, and self-injury”.
“A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you, and the sentence is your life,” explains Project Semicolon’s website.
Adelle, who has been open about her rape ordeal when she was 19, has joined the movement together with her close friend Miss Lilwe.
Taking to social media, Adelle flaunted the semicolon tattoos and wrote: “After over 10years of friendship, after all the challenges we have fought and won, and those we are still fighting, @misslwile and I got this lil reminder inked on us last night! ”
