Alicia Raimundo

Conférencière et superhéroïne de la santé mentale; elle aime le café, mais déteste les étiquettes

Alicia Raimundo has been described as a “mental health superhero”, battling serious bouts of anxiety, depression and a suicide attempt since the age of 13. More recently, she used her move to the University as a catalyst to seek help, and eventually, to help others. Since then, she has, given two TEDxTalks, was named one of 2012 “faces of mental illness”, spoke at the Clinton Global Initiative and recently returned from speaking at the UN’s international youth day at the UN headquarters in New York. She published red carnation, a book on suicide prevention that will be used in grade 8 classrooms across Canada and represented Canada in Thailand at one young world.

Pokémon Go a changé ma vie

Depuis que je joue à Pokémon Go, je me suis surprise à entamer naturellement des conversations avec des étrangers. Ça me donne une raison d'aller vers eux. Habituellement, j'ai peur qu'on pense que je sois bizarre. Mais avec Pokémon Go, tout le monde participe à la même activité bizarre!
