Shania J Noland: "I express myself through music"


My name is Shania, I’m 15 and I live in St.louis, MO. My story basicially is - I've had depression since I was 4 going on 5 years old, that's when my grandfather passed. I was recently diagnosed with depression and anxiety and last year I was so depressed that I thought there was no need for me on earth. So I cut myself. After hearing your story (Kenidra) I thought to myself, “there is a purpose for me and that there is no need to harm yourself, even if things are really bad.” I express myself through music to help with my depression because I can relate to some songs. When I listen to music I think of everything I've been through and how strong I am that I can get even farther then I already have.

Wow! Shania.. being that you are a shy person, it takes alot of courage and strength to talk about something so traumatic, to not only me but the world! You inspire me beyond what I could ever express to you! Thank you for realizing that you have a greater purpose/calling in life and making the steps towards a "better" you, such an inspiration. -xo, Kenidra
