Darnella Frazier says she still struggles with what she witnessed a year after recording the murder of George Floyd.

(CNN)Darnella Frazier says she still struggles with what she witnessed a year after recording the murder of George Floyd.

Frazier, then 17, was on her way to a Minneapolis store to buy snacks with her young cousin when she captured the clearest video of police officer Derek Chauvin pressing his knee into Floyd's neck.

On Tuesday -- a year to the day after Floyd's death -- she reflected on the weight that she's carried since that moment.

Frazier's video of Floyd's final moments was widely credited for helping secure a guilty verdict against Chauvin, and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz publicly thanked her after the trial.

Frazier wrote Tuesday that "behind the publicity, I'm a girl trying to heal from something I am reminded of every day. "

She wrote she didn't know Floyd "from a can of paint, but I knew his life mattered. "

"I knew that he was in pain," Frazier wrote.

"George Floyd, I cant express enough how I wish things could have went different, but I want you to know you will always be in my heart," she wrote.
