My Top 3 Articles:
1) Knowing I was a lesbian By Ailsa because I related to it and it would have been something I’d have read 5 years ago and felt better about myself
2) Anorexia is not an adjective By Mei because I hate that people think of EDs as a body shape and use it as an adjective, when that’s not what it is at all.
3) Songs that saved me By Jaz because I thinks it’s just a sweet, honest and helpful article and made me smile that someone wanted to list their saving songs

My Own Articles:
Hey I’m Rae,
I’m a nineteen year old girl in Perth, Western Australia. I have been through quite a lot in my relatively short life and I have always used writing as a way to deal and cope with it.
I am hoping that by being a Teenager at TWE that my writing can and will help others who come across what I write.
I am currently at uni, doing a bridging course to then hopefully study journalism or something else in the field of writing. Other than that I’m a volunteer in the NFP youth mental health sector- both for TWE and for an organisation called Youth Focus.
I don’t want to be defined by the things that I have been through, and by labels attached to my mental health. But I do want my experiences to help other people grow, as they have helped me grow.
