Sexual assault victim outed by Heidi Heitkamp tells CNN: My life will never be the same

In terms of what Heitcamp can do to fix her error, Zhorela said its a moot point since “the damage is done” and people have already been outed against their will. She also talked about what her life is like now that people know what she experienced.

“From now on when I walk around I’ll know that they know that’s what has happened to me and forever, for the rest of my life, I will have to hold the title as a survivor, and that wasn’t my choice. I never made that choice in the first place but now I’m gonna have to live with it for the rest of my life.”
