1. When did you start your YouTube channel? What inspired you to create videos?
I started my channel just under one year ago in response to my Instagram account and also my online/ in person therapy business as I wanted to give content to people who many not be able to afford in person therapy. I was inspired to create videos as I want to make self esteem, anxiety relief and mental health advice accessible for everyone as this was not accessible for me growing up with a facial deformity and I felt very alone.
2. How has YouTube helped you learn more about yourself? What does it feel like to connect with people at a global scale?
I enjoy when people tell me that my videos have helped them and I like using my six years of schooling to provide people with tips and therapy tools that I know are effective. There is a lot of information on the internet and I want to provide people with accurate information that they feel they can trust.
3. You're an exceptional storyteller. What is your process for creating a story-line?
I speak from my knowledge and professional experience but I also speak from my heart and use my own story of overcoming mental health issues to give examples and help people understand that many experiences are normal and that it is OK to talk about it and not to always be OK.
4. Who are your inspirations on YouTube? How have these channels helped you?
I would say that I take inspiration from many channels and it would be hard to credit just a few. My main inspiration are people I encounter every day and patients as well who teach me so much and help me discover new topics.
5. What is the most important piece of advice you'd share with someone who is struggling?
Don't be embarrassed to reach out and don't feel alone. don't neglect your own inner strength and the amazing power You have to overcome your own obstacles :)
