I celebrated my birthday this week, and it felt like somewhat of a monumental age. I had the great honor of spending my birthday week negotiating and drafting documents that will go on to shape policy on a continental level in Africa.
I have been following the news lately and the stories about protests and inflation and cost of living as well as the Italian head of state’s comment against the French government have really got me thinking about politics.
Lately I have been thinking quite a bit about mental health. I was recently informed of a young boy, barely in college, who took his own life. No one knows what happened, what he was dealing with, why he did what he did.
