Recently was on vacation in Dublin, Ireland, and unfortunately your experience was not good. With an image of her knuckles swollen, Carr showed that he had hit a man who was sexually assaulted in the street.
Never I am a violent person, and had never hit anyone before, but I got so angry and had so much adrenaline running through my body that I had to hit him. I left him a cheekbone swollen.
After that the adrenaline was gone, Carr doubted the manner in which he had to act, so he shared the image on Twitter. There, hundreds of people offered their support and shared over 25 thousand times the history. In this way Leanna encouraged that more women feel able to defend themselves if they are in a similar situation.

Maybe you haven’t seen it, but that does not mean that it does not happen. No matter in which country you are in. Sexual harassment occurs every day by strangers and the majority of women do not know how to defend or are afraid to do so.
The man had to think twice before attacking you
Leanna practiced weightlifting in a professional manner, so that it has a great strength in your arms, but admits that at another time might have been too intimidated to defend themselves:
In the past, I probably would have felt too shocked and I probably would have withdrawn, but if not I would have defended that man would have continued to attack innocent women.
