Chances are you know what it’s like to feel alone in your struggles. Perhaps you have mental illness, are fighting for a better future or have a secret no one else knows about. Regardless of the issue, there will always be someone else out there who genuinely understands what you’re going through – you just might not have met them yet.
These are people like Jillian Nicole who’s using her bipolar disorder to help others overcome mental illness. Or Amy Moloney who’s sharing her asexuality to educate others. Not only are these women inspirational to those who identify with their struggles, but they’re living proof that every-day people can make a difference despite the obstacles they’re working to overcome.
I’m so pleased that FLURT has become a platform where young people can connect with others. Regardless of what you’re fighting for, please remember that there are others who love and support you from all around the world – all you have to do to find them is flip the page to read their stories.
