This short tik tok video depicts a part of my life where I was struggling for four years and then finally found happiness. The loss of loved ones and the four mental hospitals I’ve been to due to depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety doesn’t stop me from being happy. While working on this piece I realized how far I’ve come in life- overcoming those difficult challenges and all the hard work finally paid off.
I wrote this poem because we never know what other people are going through. So many people have been through a lot of struggles in life (mental health struggles, family struggles, etc.), including me, so we need to be kind to one another. I hope this poem helps inspire teenagers that have struggled in life to always have hope.
A film about a youth feeling overwhelmed by the ‘noise’ of present day society – from social media, the needs of their friends, and world events.
A group of youth discuss how gratitude postively impacts their mental health.
COVID-19 has created anxiety, fear, and uncertainty among the majority. COVID-19 is responsible for the many hardships people are facing. There are less jobs, limited money and food, and many events are cancelled, delayed, or removed. A message of hope is needed to spark a new beginning, so I’ve presented this film to hopefully inspire and encourage at least one person. I want people to watch this and be optimistic about the future and have hope, no matter the circumstances.
