You are one decision away from a totally different life. – Mel Robbins…”My journey through depression started in high school. I spent years feeling hopeless, suffering from low self-esteem, and looking to others for approval because I couldn’t find it within myself. It got worse as time went on. My life changed forever when my biology professor convinced me that it’s ok to not be ok. That day, I decided that something better was out there for me. Through much courage, hard work, and personal development I am truly proud of myself and how far I have come. I’m a successful student, athlete, and mentor. Through this incredible process of growth, I learned the true meaning of resilience and strength. I believe inspiration is the most powerful thing in the world. Every amazing thing was inspired by someone or something. Just like my biology professor inspired me that day, I want to inspire someone else with my story to do something amazing.”
