For the past two years as a volunteer counselor at an alternative high school, I helped young adults process their trauma through art books they created that chronicle their childhoods. Working with these students has given me hands-on experience helping individuals come to terms with the emotional trauma fueling their depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. For over seven years, I've been tutoring students K-12 in reading, English, math, and science. Many of the kids I work with face language barriers or have diagnosed mental health differences such as learning disabilities, ADHD, or ASD. The majority of the students I've engaged with identify as a racial, ethnic, sexual, and/or gender minority, meaning I have the personal experience and professional consideration needed to successfully treat underprivileged, at-risk populations.
