He does this all while working full time as a content creator at a local marketing firm.

After an encounter with a friend who has a mental condition, Janice dedicated herself to helping those who feel alone.

Zahidah believes in giving people an opportunity to seek help and recovery. She hopes to provide
encouragement to everyone who is on their journey. Everyone needs motivation, support, encouragement and a feeling of self-worth.
As a nurse for the past 10 years, Zahidah assumed that she would have been able to advise herself. Yet, it was only when she suffered from her own mental health experiences did she realise that it was not the same. We can choose to be our own best friend or worst enemy.
Zahidah aims to spread awareness and stop the stigma on mental health and provide support to everyone out there. You are not alone!
