Hareem Brar – 2022 winner of the Helen Rose STEM
“As a youth who thought I was not going to be able to live up to my full potential because of recent struggles I've faced, words cannot describe the joy I am feeling today. As I wrote in my application for this scholarship, I am someone who has been on the other side of mental illness, and it is a scary place to be. This opportunity is allowing me to help other youths like me struggling, trying to make sense of their worlds, finding hope, and joy in the little things.”
