I joined UMatter in Spring of 2018. I’m not 100% sure where my career is headed but I know my passion is helping people and being an advocate so I envision something in that realm. I joined UMatter to become involved, I wasn't really involved in high school and I wanted to change that. I also just love the mission of the group and the fact that I get to connect with people who are just as passionate about mental health and mental illness as I am. 

My personal favorite self-care activity would probably be either listening to my music very loud and singing at the top of my lungs or having a movie/video game marathon with my friends on the weekend. Anything that lets me unplug from the daily stressors and from school for a little bit.
