Hi, I'm Charlotte! I'm a 23 year old graduate student living in NYC. Welcome to my blog!
I'm a Denver native relocated to upstate NY before heading down to the city to start my latest adventure. I'm a second year grad student in a MPH (Masters of Public Health) program, where I'm studying community health. I'm a big fan of exploring my city, going to bookstores, and playing with my cat, Tubs. I hope to one day go into community mental health programming and advocacy work, and eventually start my own non-profit.
I have my own various experiences with mental health issues, and I feel that it is important that we are vocal about them to increase awareness and eliminate stigma. I have always loved writing, and when I was in 6th grade I even wrote a novel that was 175 pages (granted the font was probably huge...). I've recently gotten into journaling again to supplement my mental health treatment, and I've found that I am learning a lot about myself. I want to share some of this writing on this blog, to open up the conversation around mental health and start making a difference.
It is my hope that by healing now I can help others and effect change in the future.
