Running for my Mental Health

2009 is sort of a blur for me. I don’t think I realized how depressed and anxious I was until I finally moved away from home. At that time in my teen years, I was struggling tremendously with relationships with my dad and my boyfriend.

Running for my Mental Health

Why I marched.

I marched in the Women’s March - I had been looking forward to it since the election.

It was a piece of hope I held onto, tightly. You see, I have been passionate about women’s rights, reproductive rights, racial reconciliation, and LGBTQ rights for a long time, since before “it was cool.” I think I was passionate about social justices before I knew what they were or what they actually meant in this country and the world.
