My name is Ashlynn and I attend Presentation Academy. I am currently a peer leader and president of Presentation's National Honors Society, and I play basketball, softball, Desales cheer, and sing in the Prezettes. I am passionate about many things in this world, such as nature, civil rights, and feminism. While these are all very important to me, I am most passionate about mental health and wellness because anxiety has affected my life and the lives of people around me. It has become a passion of mine to help people explore and understand the true concept of anxiety. Through my Senior Independent Project I am putting my passion into play by writing an interactive and informative book about anxiety. I have help from many mentors who are trained in the fields of writing and mental illness. I am planning for the first half of my book to be informative on the true concept of anxiety. I am hoping to answer any questions that are asked about anxiety in the many environments around us. I plan for the second half of my book to be an interactive journal for the reader to complete. I am hoping to have creative and lively prompts that can be connected to anxiety in order to help the reader deal with anxiety in their everyday life.
By the end of my project, I am hoping to have an edited and published book. After reading my book, I pray that people have a more direct and genuine understanding of anxiety in their life. I hope to impact and help the people struggling with anxiety.
