This is What I Want From You for My 21st Birthday


I’m finally 21! Wow. It’s so unreal. If you’ve been following me since last year, you know I always ask for a present from you. But this is no ordinary present. I ask you to take action to make this world a better place, even if it’s only for today. And here’s my birthday list this year:

1. Smile at every single person you come into contact with today.
Whether you’re at a restaurant, chillin’ with your friends, or have any time of interaction, give a smile. You never know the impact you could have on someone who’s struggling.

2. Do one thing to help yourself be a mentally healthier person.
Go for a run, rest your mind and body for 5 minutes, or just have some fun. The point is to do something.

3. Challenge your friends using #unashamed21 to make the world hear our voices.
Small actions can have such big results. Be unashamed. Period.

Thank you all for your continued love and support. It means so much to me, and I look forward to celebrating with you again next year 🙂

All the best,

About the Author:

I’m Luke, and following my own tragic story of teen depression and attempted suicide, it’s now my mission to empower other teens to recognize, overcome, and be unashamed of their mental health challenges. Will you join my movement to save even one precious life?

I’m unashamed.
