In 2019, so many teenagers are constantly overwhelmed and uneducated about mental health, self-care and connecting to their bodies. From ages 6-17, Megan struggled severely with chronic anticipatory anxiety and panic attacks. She craved a place where she could go and feel heard and seen for her struggles. After starting therapy at 13 years old, she began down the path of journaling, EFT tapping, meditation, exercising regularly, establishing morning/nighttime routines and seeing therapists. Now, at 23, she is the role model that she always wanted to be for others. After starting her business at 20 years old, she went to toastmaster public speaking meetings, started a blog, made a Youtube channel and spoke for free at every YMCA and Boys&Girls Club she could find! After three years of hard work, things took off! She landed a TEDx talk and currently travels the Country and speaks at Middle Schools and High Schools about anxiety, loving yourself and being your own advocate in life. She believes that our pain is our purpose and hopes to inspire the younger generation by sharing her story.
“Megan was great connecting with our students during her presentation for our Senior students on wellness day. Her content was relevant and specifically designed for this age group. The students could feel and see her genuine enthusiasm for speaking to them on this special day.”
“Megan is a breath of fresh air who spoke from the heart with poise and wisdom beyond her years. Her story resonated with a room packed full of High School Seniors who learned essential tools to greet their future. Piedmont High School was honored to host Megan.”
“I appreciated Megan’s advice because she was really relatable to what I was going through. She’s really approachable and easy to talk to. I also liked the meditation stuff she sent me, it was very helpful! Megan was also very nice because she opened up about her experience and makes you feel like you’re not alone!”
“Since first meeting Megan as a High school student in 2012, she has had a passion to find her true happiness while helping others along the way. It wasn’t until 4 years later that I found out her struggles with severe anxiety and panic attacks that she faced throughout her teen years. Over the past few years I’ve seen her gain more confidence, set and achieve her goals, and make every day count. Having people like Megan that are relatable and open will hopefully continue to be a source of support for others.”
