Quinton

Youth Facilitator

“My journey is one of self-discovery and self-actualization. Growing up as a marginalized youth who struggled with identity, self-acceptance and mental health, it soon became apparent to me that I would have to rebuild my self-esteem and values from within. Though I often struggled on my journey to self-acceptance, eventually it became as natural as breathing. Now I try to aid others as best as I can through their own journey to self-acceptance, whatever that looks like for them. My journey with Youthspeak began in April 2021, and I’ve been sharing my story and the lessons I’ve learned since.”
