Vote for Courtney: 1

What I love most in the world is helping people realize that life is worth living; that a bad day will pass and be followed by a multitude of great ones. Throughout the world adolescents suffer from anxiety and depression disorders and do not receive treatment. With my education I want to help children, teenagers, and young adults realize that life can be lived with anxiety and depression. I want to show them that there is help out there and there is nothing wrong with having anxiety and depression. Through each person I will expand the truth that mental illnesses are not something to be ashamed of. Mental illnesses are as real as cancer and can be as debilitating.
