I am Nicole

I am not a statisitc.

It is shown that there is 1 death every 13 minutes by suicide;

Suicide takes the lives of over 38,000 people per year;

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in all ages

and the 3rd leading cause of death in teenagers;

they say only 80-90% of adolescents who seek treatment are successful.

I am not a statistic.

Just because I attempted three times in one year does not make me a statistic.

I am more:

I am human,

I am courageous,

I am strong-willed,

I am brave,

I am powerful,

I am loved,

I am happy.

Most importantly, I am not a statistic and never will be.

I am Nicole, and I am proud to be me.

Me
