During my time as a writer, I've found that most of us tend to share similar thoughts and questions that typically go unspoken and unanswered (until given a safe, non-judgmental space to have those discussions and explore those answers). My goal is to prove that we're never as alone as we may think we are, remove the stigma associated with "taboo" topics that shouldn't be considered taboo at all, and ultimately help people live better, happier, healthier lives.
