My name is Katrina and I'm 24 years old . I have dealt with anxiety for most of my life, and grew up with a parent who also had a lot of anxiety. It really kicked in when I became a teenager and started getting bullied. I lived most of my life being afraid to get out there and make friends, go places on my own, and even drive a car.
I now have two young children that I absolutely adore and I don't want them growing up with the same anxieties I did. It's only been within the last 2 years that I've really started getting help and trying to face my fears. It's going to take a long time but It's already getting better.
The biggest thing I've learnt so far is that I'm not alone in this, there's lots of people who have anxiety and go through the same fears that I do; it's okay to ask for help.
I can now see my goals for the future a lot clearer than before. It would make me panic to even think about it but now, everyday I'm becoming more and more fearless than ever before. So my fearless goal is exactly that: to be fearless in life and in my choices.
