to fight the stigma that surrounds mental illnesses. My older brother was diagnosed with Schizophrenia eight years ago. I have so many idyllic memories with him. I was the first out of nine to graduate high school and attend college. I'm pursuing an educational career in Psychology and Child Development to one day work with families who have a family member affected by Schizophrenia.
To help end the negative stigma of mental illness. I will continue to inspire that it gets better. I will continue to inform that its not a weakness. We are intelligent and strong and deserve the same respect as those who don't have what we have. I believe the first step for a change is to have people fully understand where we are coming from, and that mental illness is a very real and serious thing.
