Since I was young, health has been a great value in my family. But unfortunately, eating well, exercising and looking at yourself in the mirror and telling yourself that you have the ideal physique is not everything. The brain is what controls all your actions, your movements, your thoughts, and it is also the brain that analyzes the words that I have written and that you are reading now: it is the big man and must be healthy too. From the age of 7 to 13, I suffered from anxiety and it affected me a lot. My quality of life has deteriorated tremendously, and even when I was having good times, I dreaded the future and was never completely at ease. It inevitably created a vicious cycle and it took me 6 years to learn how to get rid of it. Dealing with such a heavy situation on your own is an experience that made me very quickly responsible, aware and mature. If I am elected, I would love to lecture to young people to help them. I would also use my platform to share my experiences, my advice, and I would happily do yoga and meditation capsules, two activities that have helped me control my anxiety. Everyone deserves to be happy and to live every moment to the fullest. 3 years ago I would never have dared to click on the first step of the Miss Teen Canada auditions when today I am a finalist. Let’s take care of our mind.
