Winner to be featured on the cover of

Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

My talents aren’t really secrets anymore! I published a poetry/photography book at 18, released a cover album and was part of the main cast of a musical at 17, and have done graphic design and illustrations for multiple local organizations and mental health initiatives since I was 14. I’ve also won awards for sports like basketball, shot put, long jump and sprinting. I would have done well for speed skating and cup stacking as well... yes, cup stacking is a sport.

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $25,000?

I would love to see my great grandmother in Indonesia as she is currently in critical health and suffering from Dementia. I’d also start my own mental health organization dedicated to public education and providing resources for those with extra barriers. These barriers such as blindness or deafness can prevent them from accessing the existing resources to its full potential. The rest would be used for continuing my education in Psychology, preferably with a specialized focus in Neuroscience.
