2022 Teens Dream - Happy generations
My dream is to see young people just me like live a happy and cheerful life and not have to suffer alone. Growing up in Africa with depression and anxiety has been hard for me as I wasn’t able to receive the adequate support I needed even from my parents. Mental health is usually not taken seriously in Nigeria and verbal abuse is usually so normalized. I want to help grow a community to spread awareness on how important mental health is and how it should be taken seriously especially by parents who lack the understanding of it. The young shall grow and the future is in our hands; I believe in order to change the world, one must be mentally capable to face the challenges. As the four goal of the SDG states, I choose to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being at all ages and I believe it must start now!
