As for working to help others, she said: being able to be part of something that young men and women and boys and girls have experienced even worse than what I have experienced in my own life … to see that they were not suicidal like me, they didn't cut their arms like i was … they were forgiving and loved themselves and those who did, that gave me a way out. They gave me hope. & # 39;
