2019: Recovering from Whiplash
Friendly mental health awareness PSA: High functioning anxiety and depression can still look like this. So much can be hidden by a smile and bright colors.

Think before you share: Cyberbullying
Cyberbullying isn’t just something that happens on instant messenger or on the Facebooks of middle school and high school students. This is a very real issue that is prominent all across the internet and it is not limited by age or maturity level. Think before you judge.
