I am a junior studying biology at the George Washington University. As a successful person living with a mental illness, I know firsthand the impacts the illness – and stigma – can have. Through sharing my story as a person with mental illness, I hope to serve as a role model, proving that a person with a severe mental illness can succeed in life with the right resources and support. I have researched at the National Institute of Health, National Institute of Mental Health, Summer Internship Program assisting in research with Dr. Susan Amara. Besides attending college, I work at the American Film Institute. I graduated Phi Theta Kappa from Montgomery College (MD.) in 2017 with an Associate Degree in Life Sciences. I plan to serve individuals experiencing mental illness as a doctor or researcher.
