In 2012 when i was 14 years old, my best friend told me that she was going through mental health problems. this was a huge shock to me as i didn’t know much about mental health. i wanted to be a supportive friend, so i started researching mental health so i could understand more about it. my best friend always told me that my support meant so much to her, which always stuck with me. about a year later on april 8th, 2013, i was scrolling through my twitter feed when i found out that three girls i followed were thinking of suicide. after tweeting them support, i began to think how i could prevent situations like this from happening. that’s when i thought of a simple idea: pair people together as buddies. this led to the creation of buddy project (@buddyproject ), which is now a non-profit movement aiming to prevent suicide and raise awareness for mental health. we’ve connected over 215,000 people around the world with a buddy in the past five years. we hope to expand our community even more with the release of our app, which we’re in the process of creating. since becoming a 501c3 organization in 2015, we’ve raised a couple thousand dollars for mental health facilities in the united states. buddy project has helped thousands of people find an accepting and loving community to talk about mental health. mental health is important and no one should be ashamed to talk about it. you are loved, you are strong, you are capable, and you are valid. 💙

5 years ago, i was a 15-year-old girl who barely had any friends. i felt so misunderstood by everyone at school and only made friendship through the internet. the internet gave me the chance to find people throughout the globe who shared the same interests as me and understood social anxiety & mental health. i knew there were others out there who also had mental illness, but no positive peer support system. i didn’t want others to constantly feel alone and not loved like i did. i wanted everyone to have a community where they could feel loved, safe, and accepted. this simple idea is what influenced me to create buddy project. the past 5 years have been a journey and i’ve grown so much as a person. i’m so grateful i was able to transform into the person i am today. i’m glad that teenage me kept pushing on and doing what i was passionate about even when people told i was too young to make a change. happy 5th birthday buddy project 💙💚

Happy international women’s day to all women around the world, especially the amazing women in my life who have empowered and inspired me to keep doing what i’m passionate about. these women have helped me through all sorts of difficult times in my life, whether it was with school, running buddy project, or being there when i needed someone.

thank you all for allowing me to have the best mentor, mom, big and little, best friends, and aunt. 💗

Today is internet friends day and i’m so d**n grateful to have these incredible people in my life. i don’t know what i would do without all of the friends i’ve made through twitter. i’m so lucky to have friends all over the country in texas, nebraska, dc, rhode island, and even nearby. friends made over the internet as just as valid as friends in person 💗
