I think depression is something personal for each person. It isn't similar in any case. The worst part would have to be how everyone thinks what you're going through isn't enough to have you go through depression. For me, I could barely sleep at times. Other times I overslept. This time I want people around me. To notice and believe and love. Other times I want to see nobody around me. Feeling as if everyone was against me and my well being. I have a dream to get into the media industry. To do something for those who have mental health issues. I want to help as many people as possible through their mental issues. I know how it feels to drag a blade across your skin as a resort cause you can't love yourself. I want to get a platform where I give people a chance to love. Regardless of their social class, societal norms or age. I think my greatest role models are Ellen DeGeneres and Tracy Wanjiru. One because she lives her best life fulfilling her purpose despite being a lesbian and another because she was a ghetto girl like me. I believe we can all be happy. However, we need to hold each other. Fix each other's crowns. Believe in each other. Now that I'm done with form four this year, I will talk about mental health and keep being loud about the things I believe in.

That is the spirit! Go for what you believe and let the passion for your goal in life be your driving force through those difficult moments and still stand tall and be that advocate and a voice for mental health and create hope that through trusted social support network of friends, we can be pillars for each other in life.
