"I felt pressured into sharing, but I'm kind of glad it happened."
In May, TikTok star Loren Gray revealed she had been sexually assaulted at the age of 12.
It was only after receiving a message that someone knew and might share her story "in the wrong way", that she decided to speak.
In her only interview about it since, the 18-year-old tells Radio 1 Newsbeat she's grateful for the positive response.
"It was really difficult for me, because I didn't know what to expect. And I was afraid that people were going to look at me differently."
"I wasn't prepared for it, you never can be. It was hard but I feel like I handled it in the best way I could."
