Being a multi-cultured person, I have first-hand experience with the stigma, disassociation, and low acceptance rate of my community to mental health symptoms. Having lived with the experience of mental illness, I believe that acceptance is key to wellness.
Acceptance is not passive, it is a bold and intentional act.
I hope to use my life experience and mental health growth to bridge the gap in my community and be an advocate for mental health treatment and acceptance. I hope to use my educational and personal life experience to serve my community.
