Youth In Focus Juvanni
I want to show my past and how I have changed, to show me as “Be The Change.” These past few years, I’ve had challenges I wasn’t strong enough to face: going through depression, suffering from multiple personality disorder, trying to live up to standards in my family, and stressing about school. But as I get older, I’ve learned how to overcome these challenges, one by one, some taking longer than others. I have also learned that I am not alone. Others have the same problems, and they can and are willing to help. Be the change doesn’t have to be what you change physically, but can be what you change mentally and emotionally as well. And that can also have a big impact on others around you.
