Karma for Cara Foundation awards microgrants to youths 18 years of age and younger who spearhead exceptional service projects in their communities. Meet 17 year old Trinity from Memphis TN. Inspired by her own journey to overcome anxiety and depression, Note 2 Self was an art expression project for Trinity’s Girl Scout Gold Award. She states, “Art is what gets me through. It allows me to speak when I do not have the words. It is my release when the world becomes too big. I want to share my experience with others and teach them about the power of expression and that mental illness is not taboo.” Trinity hosted an art expression workshop for teens that included a showcase of participants’ art work for family & friends that doubled as an awareness event about mental illness.
