In May 2006, Kimberly Corban was brutally raped by a complete stranger in her college dorm room.
After the horrific event that forever changed the direction of her life, Corban vowed to never be vulnerable again — instead, she chose to educate herself with self-protection and, more specifically, how to use a firearm.
With her assistance and courage, Corban’s rapist was arrested and convicted in 2007.
“Your greatest courage comes from your worst struggles,” said Corbin who has now become a role model and inspiration to others wanting to learn about protecting themselves.
Corban, who is featured in TurningPointUSA’s “Trigger Warning Campus Tour,” in which she talks about her story and how other students can help, says her motto is, “Being a victim is never a choice, but becoming a survivor is.”
“I don’t carry because I worry about what could happen. I carry because I already know.”
Corban, who spoke along with Kristi McMains, Katie Pavlich, Antonia Okafor, and Ashlee Lundvall at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this year, told of how she met Kristi McMains, a Louisville attorney who was attacked in January 2016.
McMains, who had been inspired by Corban, began carrying a gun for self-protection. Within weeks, Kristi’s life was threatened by a knife-wielding criminal.
Kristi credits her survival to Corban, who forever changed her life with her survival tips.
At CPAC, Corban proudly listened as McMains told her story for the first time.
According to the Daily Caller, Corban avoids movies that glorify rape and said, “What it’s like to have your soul murdered is never accurately depicted. I don’t seek out fictional depictions of it in movies because there’s enough of it in real life.”
