I want to denormalize...
I’d like to denormalize the idea of celebrity. Especially in today’s age. I feel it’s gotten out of hand since the birth of social media and you can see how it’s started affecting so many people. There’s a huge sense of entitlement across these platforms that can isolate others and create a sense of loneliness and unworthiness. I think it only exacerbates people’s anxiety when they’re constantly subjected to it.
I want to normalize...
I’d like to normalize conversations about anxiety and depression. It’s more prevalent than ever before, especially amongst younger age groups. These two things obviously go hand in hand and it needs to be addressed – and people should feel comfortable speaking up about it. A lot of younger people lack basic conversation/interpersonal skills as they’re always glued to their phones and struggle to have real, genuine relationships. That in itself is creating huge, widespread issues.
