My name is Ameera, and I’m a business professional who happens to be an advocate for mental health. There’s a lot more to me than that, though. I also love sharks, funny movies, trashy TV, Lego, and a good Merlot. People call me funny, determined, stubborn, witty, logical, considerate, and selfless. I call myself just me. I never want to be the best, because that means that someone else isn’t; I just want to be the best me I can be. I believe I can get closer to that idea through this blog. It explores my mental illness and other health struggles in a not-so-medical way. I can promise I will be as honest and open as I can, and the truth isn’t always quite what you’d expect. Some may call me a mental health advocate, but really, I’m just an advocate of my own voice that happens to have a lot to do with mental health.
I’m the type of person who loves answering questions, especially the hard ones, so don’t be afraid to share any comments, questions or suggestions. You can email me at email@example.com, follow me on twitter @LadakAmeera or leave a comment on one of my posts.
I speak on a number of different topics, ranging from my personal experiences and stories about mental illness, to broader discussions about mental health. Having won the 2015 Sauder School of Business Public Speaking Competition and spoken to groups of over 750, I can work with any audience. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about me speaking at your next event. Topics and talks are tailored to every audience and event.
Keep Surviving by Living.
