Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi! I’m BreeAnna. I’m a 16 year old from the midwest. As of right now i’m a full time high school student, work a part time job, and take college classes online. In my free time, i like to paint, meditate, and write poetry.
What Inspires You Every day? : My main inspiration is my past self. Everyday I look back at who I used to be, the way I used to think, and the quality of my life at the time. Knowing how much progress I have made from then inspires me to make more progress.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: “You are not a product of your environment”
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My goal in life is to absorb as much information and wisdom as I can. This can really have a great positive affect on a life I think. As I walk this earth I want to take something positive from every experience I have, and be able to apply that to my life.
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : Social media is a great way to network and connect with people, but don’t forget that the real world has just as much, if not more to offer. I think the best way to use a social media platform is to spread positivity. Keep it real, always.
How would you help people around the world who are going through mental health problems? : Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s so easy to feel alone in a crowded room, but everyone has their own battles and experiences, there will always be someone somewhere that can relate and is willing to listen. Also, it’s okay to feel you feelings. Battling mental health is never about not feeling the way you do. Holding in everything only gives it an environment to multiply in.
How would you describe a better world for us all? : The better world right now would be a world where people learn to put down their phones. Social media can harbor so much negativity, and gives people a chance to say things that they would never say if it wasn’t behind a screen. This world is struggling and so are our souls. If everyone put away the differences in politics, sexuality, and religion to the side and just talked to each other face to face, i think the quality of the world would be much better.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I am always learning. I don’t ever want to peak in any sense. I crave growth always.
