Firstly, let me thank you for taking the time to read over my application to begin a new chapter in my life as well as others. My name is Jamie and I identify as a non-binary, woman (unfortunately) who has lived experiences and worked with many therapists throughout my life to lineate my path and lived experiences. I am here today as someone who walked into a random therapist’s office when I was 9 under the will of my parents after attempting suicide and was told that my story was not over yet. It not only resonated with me at the moment, but still to this day. I came across Project Semicolon when I was scrolling Pinterest and ever since I have dreamed of the day I would be able to give back. This organization and movement has changed so many lives and I aspire to do just that as well. The PNW needs more mental health resources now more than ever and I would love to partner with others in the communities, I hope to serve, to change other lives; as you have mine.
Thank You. I look forward to your response and working with you in the future.
