Adau Mornyang shared the incident which took place on 2nd January 2012. The incident has haunted her for more than five years now.
The model lived in Adelaide at that time, and she turned to two male friends whom she knew from her community after she separated from her boyfriend.
Both her friends offered her alcohol and told her that it will solve her problems and will also help her to forget about her ex-boyfriend.
In the beginning, everything was going good, but as soon as the alcohol took over her head, the two men tried to take control over her.
She used fictitious names for the two men, "John" and "Peter" and described the graphic detail of the assault which took place.
'What I remember was I was on a concrete floor, and I could hear the boys talking among them as I lay there in shock,' she said in the video.
The effect of alcohol was so high on her that she could not see anything properly and her body was also not moving.
'They both struggled to spread my legs. 'Peter' had to hold my leg while 'John' did his business,' she said.
The two men were arrested within 24 hours when she reported the incident to the police. They were also charged on account of sexual assault.
Her community harassed and bullied her by saying that she asked for the assault to happen with her. She then dropped the case and shifted to Melbourne.
She shared the incident because she was fighting with it from the inside. The incident ruined her life in many ways.
She added, "I need you guys to understand something - especially us Sudanese people. Rape is not OK. No matter how drunk that girl is... that does not give you the right to violate her body."
Adau Mornyang will compete in the official crowning ceremony of Miss World Australia which will take place at Grand Hyatt Melbourne on 14th July 2017.
She came to Australia as a refugee when she was ten years old. She also spoke of the Sudanese children in the community as they need help. They get acquainted with drugs and violence at a young age.
She also urged other women to speak out and confront every wrong thing they have experienced.
Her bold move is truly inspiring.
