“I once thought the mistakes of my past would completely derail me from the future I wanted. I know how it feels to feel hopeless. Feel stuck. Feel inadequate and unworthy.

That's why it is important to me to tell others that they do matter; that they will make it. They are worthy and adequate. I know that means being vulnerable, and bearing my scars, but it is worth it even if just one person is able to move forward and survive. This world is waiting on them to and I want to help.”
