"I spent years hating and harming myself, and I truly believed I was worthless"
Olivia's biggest obstacle started when she was 14...
I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about 4 years of depression, self harm and bulimia. I spent years hating and harming myself, and I truly believed I was worthless.
I didn't have a role model back then, as mental illness was not talked about back then, and I felt like I was the only one suffering.
After years of self hatred I discovered self love through therapy and good friends. I realised that all the years I spent hating myself resolved in nothing.
I still deal with bipolar disorder; I'll never be cured of that, but I'm learning to deal with it in a healthy way.
Olivia's biggest inspiration is...
My biggest inspiration is my mom. She is the strongest woman I know, she always puts others first and never complains about anything. She is my idol, my hero, and my best friend.
