Today we introduce you to Mikaela, a former news anchor, goal getter and survivor of sexual abuse. Mikaela is living beyond should... What do we mean by that? The societies in which we all live often make us feel we have to live a certain way. We should get married by a certain age, we should have so much money in the bank... and so on. While there is nothing wrong alongside your communities norms, Mikaela is breaking down some should's and living to really experience new things and make memories! Listen to learn more about how she is learning to manage her struggles with mental illness and how she is a true SURVIVOR of sexual assault.
This story covers topics of sexual assault, suicide, overdose and other mental health relates topics and struggles. Please reach out to someone if you are in need.
