Riverdale star Camila Mendes has found the strength to fight back as she came forward as a survivor of sexual assault in an interview with Women’s Health Magazine. The actress, who came in the spotlight after her role as Veronica Lodge in Riverdale took off, opened up about a variety of things in her candid interview with the magazine. The actress revealed that she became a victim of sexual assault during her college days in New York. 

The actress spoke about her childhood days and revealed that before the age of 18 she had already moved 12 times. Calling it a 'traumatic' experience, Camila said that as an adult now she has cultivated the habit of visiting regular cafe's, hotels, yoga classes and Pilates studios to make her feel like home when she is travelling. 

The idea of having a home and a sense of belonging is so deeply ingrained in the actress that she even got a tattoo that reads “to build a home” above her rib in cursive lettering. But Camila revealed that the tattoo came during a dark period in her life. The Riverdale star who attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts had a tough time. 

In her first year, the actress explained that she was drugged with a date rape drug and sexually assaulted during her first year at college. She said, “I got the tattoo after my freshman year. I had a very, very bad experience; I was roofied by someone who sexually assaulted me,” Camila revealed fighting back her tears. Since then, Camila has vowed that everything in her life would make her feel safe and comfortable—the qualities she imagined in an ideal physical home.
