I am a Health Sciences student at the University of Calgary who believes in the power of youth to address the challenges faced by socially marginalized groups, particularly regarding mental health. As a multidisciplinary artist, I use poetry and visual art to bring stories to life. My art is autobiographical — growing up with loved ones with complicated mental health challenges has motivated me to relentlessly advocate for youth mental wellness. Through my involvement with Kids Help Phone (as an NYC member, Site and Logistics Lead at my local Walk so Kids Can Talk presented by BMO and volunteer Crisis Responder), I am dedicated to fostering a culture of acceptance of people with mental illness, reducing mental health stigma among youth and improving access to mental health resources for underserved communities.
