Description

Our October Speaker will be our currently reigning Queen: Miss Teen Washington International 2017 and Miss King County Teen USA 2017, Miss Tracy Anderson! Our first Queen Guest Forum Speaker is a 17-year-old who is passionate about educating and advocating for mental illness in young adults.

Teenagers in today’s generation are faced with multiple trials as they grow up, especially with the effects of social media and high school. Tracy gives her insight on dealing with mental illness while growing into adulthood. Correlating her struggles to her successes, she loves to use her past trials to inspire and help others. Having experienced living a life of mental illness, she works hard to fight the stigma that surrounds mental illness and the stigmas that are making teens feel scared to ask for help.

Being known as a “beauty queen” she speaks the truth about the misconceptions that exist about mental illness. Tracy is determined to devote the rest of her life to lowering suicide statistics and providing adolescents with the love and support needed to thrive. She is positively passionate that every time one individual has the strength to share their own trials, they have the ability to positively impact many other lives.

Let’s all support our current Miss Teen Washington International and Miss King County Teen USA for 2017! She welcomes all people of all ages and she will very happy to have this opportunity to speak to you. For such a young lady, she has accomplished many milestones and you will be inspired by her words. All are welcome to this free forum. Please join us.
