“I have always dreamed of going to college, but the journey was a lot harder than I had expected it to be. At times I thought I wouldn’t graduate or even live. During 9th-11th grade, I was hospitalized for around a year due to medical and mental health issues that resulted from an eating disorder.
I wasn’t allowed a lot of time to work on homework. It would have been easy to give up and just drop out, but my determination to recover, continue my education, and eventually help others is what kept me going. I survived, I am succeeding in recovery, and I will be going to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse next year to major in therapeutic recreation.
The support from my family, friends, therapist, and school counselor is part of what helped get me here. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t have that support. Mental health is often overlooked, so I am also making it one of my priorities to raise awareness and help provide support on campus. If you are struggling, please know that there is always hope.” -Sydney Knuppel #BetterMakeRoom
