What was your first experience with VR?
I tried VR for the first time at a work Christmas party a couple of years ago, and it blew my mind. It was a VR roller coaster experience, and no matter how much I mentally prepared and told myself that I was not going to really be on a roller coaster, I completely lost my cool. My brain and my senses were tricked into believing this was real – That’s when I realized how powerful VR was.
Why is a better future for mental healthcare important to you?
I think we all have struggled with mental health at some point in our lives, or we all know someone who has, so this hits home – if not for yourself, then for a loved one. It’s so important and necessary to increase the options of medical responses to mental health issues in order to destigmatize mental healthcare, improve its accessibility, and normalize it so people don’t feel alone with their struggles. Especially in today’s day and age, where external stressors are at an all-time high globally.
What’s a hobby, habit or ritual that puts you at ease or strengthens your mental health?
Working out… it sounds so cliché, and I truly hate it sometimes, but getting up from my desk or my couch, moving my body, and clearing my mind helps me so much!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
You create your own opportunity- it’s not really advice, more so a sentence I live by. Nothing is simply going to come to you, you need to get out of your comfort zone sometimes to make things happen.
