Claire Ashman, speaker and author of Lessons from a Cult Survivor
Claire spent the first 36 years of her life in two different strict religious movements. Although both based on Catholicism, the latter group was a bit more sinister. The leader of that group was jailed for paedophilia after abusing his power by molesting teenage girls.
After challenging the leader's authority through a series of letters, Claire and her family were evicted from the latter group. Through sheer grit and determination Claire and her family have thrived. She has given four TEDx talks within the space of two years. Claire’s story, as described in her memoir Lessons from a Cult Survivor is one of strength, resilience and courage.
