"When I was little, I wanted more than anything to be an astronaut. Now, I’ve left such childish dreams behind…for much bigger ones."
Date of Interview - Friday, November 3 @ 10am PST
When I was little, I wanted more than anything to be an astronaut. Now, I’ve left such childish dreams behind…for much bigger ones. After suffering from undiagnosed Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) for four years as a teen, I survived a serious suicide attempt (watch my story video for more details). Once I was told I was suffering from a medical disease that I could overcome and that more than 1 in 4 of my peers were suffering like I was, I made it my mission to heal not only myself, but support others along the way. And so on a September night in 2013, with the simple tagline of “Unashamed. (Period)”, U Can’t B Erased was born.
Ever since then, I’ve been flooded with stories from parents, teens, teachers, grandparents, and everyone in between about various mental health challenges they’re facing. I believe every single person has a story worth telling, and I want to help you along that journey so you can, in turn, be unashamed.
