Having dealt with depression, anxiety, and an eating disorder first hand, I am a passionate advocate of mental health awareness. After my dad, my best friend in this world, passed away, I put a loaded pistol to my head and came terrifyingly close to ending my own life. From that point on, I decided to make a change, and dedicated my life to helping others using my story.
Somewhere along this crazy journey, I learned the importance of self love. It creates confidence, happiness, promotes a positive self image, build a healthy mindset, and leads to an overall healthier you. In an effort to share the importance of self love and to support Mental Health America (MHA), a national, community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness, I've created the "love myself" apparel line.
