Link – Teen, who attempted suicide seven times, builds apps that saved her life and others
The rest of her story is good, don’t get me wrong, but this quote really got to the point of it all, I think:
“I can honestly say that technology has saved my life,” Southworth said. She says she hasn’t harmed herself or attempted suicide since. “When I found something greater than myself, I realized that I am not just a person with a life. I am a person who has something to contribute.”
You all are people with something to contribute. It might be an app, it may be a book, a message, or it may just be supporting the people around you, but they are all contributions. Each and every contribution adds up, if you aren’t here to make yours, we are all a little less because of it.
