The topic could be sort of taboo

I would say that it [discussions of sexual assault] is something that should be included during welcome weeks, especially coming from the Caribbean. Like, the topic could be sort of taboo; people might not want to speak about it as much, but I feel like it should be something that everyone knows about and students [can feel] comfortable to speak up about. Because, I feel like even though, like, it may be available on certain floors, some people might not know exactly how to approach a situation like that through the right channels.
