“I was diagnosed with depression in 2000, when I was 12 years old. Two years later I started self harming. I can’t really recall prior to that but I know I had issues. However, depression is what I have, not who I am. I am a daughter, cousin, friend, niece, and granddaughter. I work with special needs children and it has become my passion. I believe it is why I was put on this earth. My life is full of love, peace, hope, and happiness. Things I never thought I would know but can now experience because I listened to my heart and believed that I was more than just a label.”
