Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I’m 18, I’m from upstate NY. I have a little brother and an older sister who passed away 6 years ago due to suicide.
I currently live in houston texas, I’m trying to get my life together aha. I’ve been through a lot of bad things, i used to hate myself and hate living, i went through a lot and it took me a while to right my wrongs, own up to my wrongs, and change, and find self love. Don’t ever give up, life gets better, its the paths you choose. Never ever, lose hope.
What are the bad things you see on social media?
I always see bullying, petty drama, racism, homophobia and it makes me sick.
What are the hardships you go through?
I was raped when i was 8, it took me a long time to even cope with it, I’ve had many suicide attempts due to it, but i grew, and got through it, it always goes through my mind but i dismiss it, that’s my past. I have an emotionally abusive/physically abusive mother, i struggle fixing our relationship, i lost so much respect for her. And i have this guy, who i was dating, who is just, idk its complicated i just want the best for myself and him. I currently live in a hotel in houston without a job, nor a car but I’m working on it.
What are your goals in life?
I want to be 100% happy with myself and my life. I don’t need fancy things, I don’t need a bunch of money, i want to be financially stable with a job, a car, and someday a house. I want to have kids when I’m 25-30. I truly just want to be happy and comfortable in my own skin without doubts, i want to overcome my PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, etc.
What would you do if you could change the world?
End racism, homophobia, prevent bullying at all costs. Help our planet, save the animals, and make sure everyone is safe, less homeless people but my goal would to lower the prices of everything , and to make getting jobs for the homeless just a bit easier, my goal would for there to be NO homeless people.
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
No. But I’m learning to cope, and rather than focus on the negatives, focus on the positives because all i can do is fix myself, and push through the hard times and prevent future hard times.
