Ideally, I would be a writer. As a person who has gone through PTSD I would use my work to make people, especially adolescents, not feel so alone. The teenage years are so essential to growth and coming into ones own. Too many young adults suffer from depression and isolation. This leads to too many different problems that could be avoided if they didn’t feel so isolated. I would also like to be a humanitarian in my work. Emphasizing justice, racial equality, environmentalism and of course mental illness. I would hope that my words could open people’s eyes to issues that are often not prevalent in everyday society. Young people have more power than they think. I wish that I had had the knowledge to be more active as a teen and raise awareness with my peers. The future truly is with our children and young adults. The more power they claim the better off we are in the world.
