Some people in the media have referred to me as “the real life Kimmy Schmidt.” For those of you who don’t know, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a popular show on Netflix about a girl who is trapped in a cult in an underground bunker and then escapes to find herself starting life all over in New York City as a young adult. Like Kimmy, I spent most of my life cut off from the world and had to find my place in mainstream America as a young teenager after spending my life preparing for the Apocalypse. Below are some interviews  and a few articles I’ve written about my experience in the Children of God cult and about the show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
