My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.

Dear future me,

By the time this letter gets delivered to my door, I hope that I won’t be too old! And don’t get me wrong no one gets old, we only get younger!  Not only do I want to see my family succeed in life, but also hope for the best of myself, and become the women I have dreamed of becoming.

These past couple of few years have been the toughest we have gone through, some of us lost our loved ones, while the rest of us prayed for those that were battling Covid- 19. All though we may have had good times and made great memories we all were very confused and worried about our future ahead of us. But guess what life is starting to become normal, and it’s only going to get better once everyone gets fully vaccinated! To those lovely human beings out there, if you are currently reading this I want to let you know that, you are doing amazing to all the parents out there if you are reading this I want to let you know that you have done such a great job on balancing working from home and supporting your family, to all the students out there if you are reading this I want to let you know that, you have come so far and have done such amazing things that would benefit you in the near future, and those who are graduating this year all though you may not get the chance to walk down the hall. With your cap and gown, you worked very hard this term and we are all very proud of you!

This year I had the opportunity to work from home, all though I may have gained new skills that have been very beneficial for myself, I still had my doubts about myself. I have always been very interested in psychology and mental health for many years and have been an active participant in various organizations that support those who are in need of seeking help. As someone who is a Social Worker and also a Psychologist, I decided to start my own non-profit organization called “The Mental Health Foundation” The society we are currently living in is not perfect, and there is still quite a lot of gaps that need to be resolved. Nothing can be resolved unless we as a nation /community speak up against the mental well-being of others. Yes, a small difference can make a big difference no matter what as long as we are able to create a positive environment for those who are dealing with a mental illness. Right now, I want you to stop what you are doing, whether it’s leaving the house for a breath of fresh air or calling someone who truly cares about you or just a simple text message and ask them about how they are feeling and or if they need anything. It takes courage from both sides to open up about a personal issue, but at the end of the day, you will realize the connections you were able to make.

My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals. I may not know what is yet to come, for myself but when the day comes, and I do decide to start a family of my own with my future husband. I hope to bring my future children in a safe generation and teach them how to appreciate the little things that are given to them, and not to be afraid of making mistakes, because no matter what age you are we all learn from our past mistakes. Last but not least I hope that my future husband will read this letter one day and know how much I adore him!

To those who are suffering from a mental illness, I promise to support you, at the end of the day it is my job to do so. I promise to give you my full attention and help you grow and become the person you want to become. I promise to show the world how important mental health is, and why we should focus on the well-being of others. I promise to educate youth and have them be trauma-informed and have them start a small conversation at school about mental health. I promise my current generation – future generation, that I will do anything to make a difference. My only hopes are to show the world how important mental health is, and how much it could be by just starting a small conversation and or helping someone you know, succeed in life that once had a mental illness.

It’s time to take action, for a better generation.

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,
