Jade Picon, 22, reported being a victim of sexual harassment during an exchange in England a few years ago. The digital influencer and former BBB member said that the incident happened inside the elevator of the building where she was living, when she was 15 to 16 years old.

The story came to light during an interview she gave to the program E Você?, led by Manuela Xavier on YouTube. The presenter commented that Jade was a person who seemed to trust her own instincts a lot when she was surprised by the story.

“I had an experience that was very memorable in my life: I was harassed,” said Jade. “I’ve always been more sensitive to intuitions, but I still didn’t work on it much, I kind of ignored it.”

“Until one day I was doing an exchange, I was in England, and I was coming back from school to go up to my building”, he continued. “I saw that there was a person standing in front of the building. I was with two friends. I found this person strange. The building needed a card to open. I found it strange that the person was kind of waiting for us to get in to get a ride. “

“And I was already feeling something strange,” he said. “When I saw the corridor and the elevator, I thought: ‘Don’t go in, don’t go in, don’t go in’. It was as if something was pulling me back. It was very bizarre, it seemed like everything had gone into slow motion. But I thought: ‘How am I going to explain to my friends that we’re not going to get in that elevator?’.”

“I was 15, 16 years old. I was embarrassed, I thought: I’m crazy. And then it happened. He came in, touched us, it was terrifying”, he recalled. “We called the police, it was very chaotic, traumatic. And then I said: I will never listen to myself again.”

Jade said that, despite everything, she tried to learn a positive lesson from the event. According to her, since then, she always trusts her intuition. “I’d rather continue believing in what I don’t believe than paying to see it,” she said.
