I am a 24 year old Filipino woman, born and raised in Australia. I’m a full-time psychology & counselling student (yes, I live week to week but no, I wouldn’t trade this opportunity for anything). Compassion is my biggest strength. Second, is my ability to watch YouTube videos until 2AM. My weaknesses are generic. They include things like dairy and clothes that fit only-ever-so-perfect.
Why The Tiny Healer?
I created this platform to educate others about mental illness, self-care and ways to cope through difficult situations. For me, self-expression is hugely cathartic, so The Tiny Healer is a place to document my journey of learning about life. I am interested in fashion, RnB music, skincare and exploring the world — so my posts may include those too! You may notice my online presence changing occasionally, so please bear with me as I find my footing online!
What do I hope for?
It is my hope to raise awareness about mental-health issues, encourage self-discovery as well as compassion for people. Particularly, in the Asian community where I grew up (as well as others I’ve had conversations with) where mental health was not mentioned much/at all throughout their childhood/adult life. Honesty is good for the soul and healthy for the mind. The more honest we are, the less energy we spend hiding.
