Local Teacher Takes Over Insta to Talk Mental Health

Nicci, a local middle school teacher pursuing her master’s degree shares her story and takes over our insta this week! 

I am currently getting my masters in Organizational Leadership with hopes to work for a nonprofit or business in the near future. I myself have struggled with mental illness from the age of 12.

Between dealing with anorexia, anxiety, and depression—high school and college were not easy. Thankfully, therapy and medicine have saved my life. My motto each day is “The meaning in life is to help others find meaning in theirs.” I don’t know where my future career may take me, but I do know wherever my career takes me, it’ll involve making a difference in the lives of others.
