Why SHWAB? I chose to become a member of SHWAB to impact students' lives, particularly concerning their mental, physical, and emotional health. I grew up in a family where the concept of vulnerability, or going to the doctor and seeking counseling/therapy, was taboo and looked down upon, so I'm passionate about diminishing the stigma around seeking help and mental and physical health struggles.
