My favorite part about working with Psypher is hearing the unique perspectives that youth bring to the table. It’s empowering to see these young people engaging in discussions about wellness and watching their growth over the course of our workshops.

What I enjoy about working with Psypher is that I can share the life lessons, joy, and experience of dance with the next generation while combining that with my passion for wellness. I’m so honored to be able to help in developing curriculum for Psypher and facilitating especially because I wish I had someone to teach me about these skills and mindsets when I was in high school as well as encourage healthy expression through the arts in a safe, welcoming space.

There isn’t anything else like Psypher. We start where it matters - with the youth. The stages of growing up impact who we are, how we are, and what we become; therefore, being able to provide an insightful wellness education allows us to start those conversations at a young age. I’m blessed and grateful to be part of this team by spreading the word about what we do and the people we impact through the lens of a camera.

My favorite part about working with Psypher is to be part of those moments to learn and to produce a good support team and has been my safe space, even to work alongside with an extraordinary team. Psypher has been encouraged me to create more awesome ideas that I wasn’t familiar with, and I was open-minded. With my design skills, I was to be able to help what wellness means. Plus I hope the youths enjoy the Instagram post we present for them.

For me the best part of Psypher is being able to contribute to the mental health problems throughout the community and educate those who are unaware of some of the issues that our youth faces daily. I’m also extremely grateful and inspired to be able to work with so many creative and caring individuals that do so much to contribute to Psypher.
