After seeing my stunning friend Anna aka @misannabell share her story on Jasmine Alexa ‘This Is Me’ campaign, I thought I would share a bit of my story with you all. I won’t lie. I had three or more attempts at filling out the questionnaire and never hit send. Which is strange as I am so vocal about my journey with mental health. But if I am perfectly honest, sometimes putting it all into words can be a struggle in itself.
The “this is me “campaign was started by Jasmine Gescheit who founded and designed Jasmine Alexa, a fashion and lifestyle brand which also created a wonderful initiative for women to share their stories around mental illness and life in general. A safe and open space for us women to just talk. I don’t know Jasmine, nor have I ever meet her, but she sounds like such a lovely and caring woman and I think “THIS IS ME” Is a wonderful thing to be apart off. So, yes, I finally ended up hitting send.
If you would like to check out my interview along with a bunch of other brave ass women visit This Is Me here
This Is Me tees are available for purchase with all proceeds being donated to https://www.headspace.org.au/
Don’t be afraid to share your story.
And if you’re wondering, I have not been paid to promote this, I simply did it on my own terms and made a small donation to Headspace.
