Urban Beats has taught me to love myself and never give up on seemingly unobtainable dreams. Here, I feel safe and free to think big and change the outlook and stigma of mental illness.

“I’ve tried, failed, and found myself.”

“I think people should be able to express themselves how they want to, and not be afraid.”

“I had to learn how to process my anger through positive outlets. I found healing through writing, through music, and spirituality. “

“So when you’re trying to save the world, you have to use your imagination.”
