Ana Ortiz found herself in a abusive relationship when she was in her 20s. She told PeopleenEspanol.com, "When I was younger, I had a charismatic boyfriend with a mean streak and I allowed myself to become entangled. It all started in a very innocent way. He began to embarrass me, insult me and humiliate me. Then he started to flirt with my girlfriends in front of me and that escalated into physical violence. I was fortunate that I could trust my mother, who realized what was happening and got me to tell her what was going on without passing judgment. She was the help I needed." She now speaks out about her experience with domestic violence and has partnered with campaigns to stop the abuse.
