Last year February, I was invited to speak at the 2020 National Active Minds Conference, the nation’s premier conference focused on young adults and mental health.


I was super excited about the opportunity to connect and strategize with fellow mental health advocates and stigma fighters, and also share the stage with some amazing speakers like, Zackary Levi @zackarylevi, Frank Warren, Kevin Briggs, Kai Roberts, Greg Vogt, Pablo Campos and many others!

While at the conference, I was presented with an opportunity to participate in a documentary film about mental health and suicide. It was a no-brainer for me! "Of course!" If you know anything about me, you know that I am passionate about encouraging the conversation about mental health and I’m on a mission to eradicate the stigma of mental illness. My passion comes from my mental health struggles.


During my freshman year of college, I was diagnosed with clinical depression. I felt alone. Hopeless. Helpless.


Fast forward six years later, and I’ve established a business and built partnerships that enable me to share my mental health story with individuals around the United States.


I do what I do because I battled severely with depression, suicidal ideation and it almost took my life. Whenever I speak, coach, or write, I want others to know that they’re not alone if they’re struggling, and although they may be depressed now, they don’t have to stay depressed forever.


Through Christ, therapy, and a whole lot of work I overcame depression! That’s my message of hope.


I’m so excited about the release of this documentary film Each and Every Day, which will premiere commercial-free on MTV February 16th at 9pm ET/PT


It was truly a pleasure to work with all of the brave souls who stepped up to share their mental health stories. Also, I enjoyed working with Alexandra Shiva, Peabody Award-winning documentary director, Lindsey Megrue, producer, the entire team at Gidalya Pictures, The Jed Foundation, and everyone who played a part in the creation of this film.


It’s about time that we start to have open conversations about mental health and suicide. I believe that this film will impact many lives.

Why Can’t I Pray Depression Away?
