Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I was raised in a seven person household , the oldest of five children. And with that came a lot of responsibility, at such a young age. In a way this pushed me to grow up a little bit faster , which I believe affects the person who I am today. It was been challenging with the fact of taking care of my siblings at times and also having them look up to me as an example really puts the pressure on me to be the best example I can be.
What are the bad things you see on social media?
Social media in general I find can tend to be a bad thing at times. Such as the fact that it can cause people to become more insecure about themselves and can have a huge effect on their mental health. Personally I find myself scrolling through social media whenever I have nothing else to do and sometimes afterwards I feel a little bit worse about myself because I compare myself to others and I find that aspect of social media can be a bad one.
What are your goals in life?
Some goals of mine in life would have to be reaching a level of self love and confidence and learning to be okay with who I am and not be afraid to show my true self around others. And I think that once I learn how to do that I can accomplish so much more because I won’t be afraid of what people think of me.
What would you do if you could change the world?
If I could change the world I would address the issue of mental health. Because from the point of view of someone who has suffered with mental health issues I believe this is something that should be addressed and frankly I feel that people shouldn’t be afraid to reach out and ask for help and I think there should be more resources for thses people and councillors should be more accessible.
