A 15-year-old Filipina was chosen by an Australian group to be its voice in its campaign against child sexual assault.
Liz Conde, who currently resides in Brisbane, was selected by the Bravehearts Inc.—an organization advocating the protection of children against sexual assault—to be its first ambassador, and to c0-write and sing a song that will inspire survivors of sexual abuse.
Conde’s song, entitled “Indestructible,” is set for release in television and radio programs in Australia next year, an article from the organization's website said.
Bravehearts Inc. is an organization comprised of “survivors, parents, friends, partners, professionals and non-abusive members of the community who share in the belief that child sexual assault must stop.”
The young Filipina described her new task as ambassador for Bravehearts Inc. as “privilege” because she was given the chance to inspire to young victims of sexual abuse.
"I am honored that my family's story was the inspiration for the creation of such a powerful song for survivors,” she said.
"‘Indestructible’ has given me an opportunity to reach out to those who have experienced sexual assault,” she said in an interview posted on www.mygc.com.au, an interactive community for residents of Gold Coast City in Queensland.
The music video of the song, which talks about empowerment, also features the young Filipina.

Bravehearts Inc. founder Hetty Johnston, whose story served as inspiration for Conde and fellow composer Sunday Luate-Wani to write the song, said she was “moved to tears” when she first heard “Indestructible.”
