I am 25 years old and work as an Electrical Engineer in New York City. I like to spend my free time with friends, usually checking out new spots around the city! I am and have always been a strong advocate for mental health awareness. I am understanding of the various effects that mental illness can have on families and individuals and I believe that the work NAMI-NYC does is vital, especially now. Running is important to me because it has gotten me through so many hurdles with my own mental health. I am so excited to run on behalf of NAMI-NYC and be able to fundraise and give back while doing so!
