When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a fashion designer and used to sketch outfits in my notebook.

Reducing the stigma against mental illness is something I’ve been personally affected by and is very close to my heart.
If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?
I believe art is one of the best healing modalities. I would harness the power of creativity and teach art to those who would most benefit from it.
