"The positive postulation of "inclusion" and "

co-existence" is close to my heart, and I firmly believe that by integrating these ideas into our lives, we can mitigate many of the mental health issues that we face today."

"I want people to understand that it is okay to not be okay and that seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness.

My goal is to reduce the stigma around mental health so that those who need help are comfortable enough to ask

for it."
