Panelist at the 2017 Teen Wellness Conference
Pronouns: she, her, hers
My name is Sammy. I am currently a freshman at the College of San Mateo majoring in Psychology. I’ve struggled with OCD, anxiety, depression, BDD, and anorexia throughout a large part of my teenage years. Through the ASPIRE Program I have learned valuable skills that have enabled me to take control of my mental illnesses. I am now a strong advocate for mental health awareness and hope to keep the conversation going in order to destigmatize mental illnesses and help others.
