INDIANAPOLIS -- An IUPUI student had the chance to share a stage with Lady Gaga Sunday at the Oscars and spread a message about surviving sex abuse.
Kirat Sandhu appeared with the pop star with "Not Your Fault" written on her arm.
It's a message she was glad to have a chance to share.
"So many people have been saying to me, you are so lucky," she said. "I wish I could trade lives with you. At the end of the day, I was there because I was sexually abused as a child, and I don't wish that on anyone. But I am so happy to have this chance to speak out and have my story to inspire others to come forward."
RTV6 Reporter Derrick Thomas spoke with Sandhu after her Oscars appearance. Watch that interview in the video player above.
