When Her Secret Life Fell Apart, She Couldn’t Hide Anymore

Karis grew up feeling confused and isolated about her ethnic backgrounds, both Caucasian and Asian. She didn’t know who she was or where she belonged. That loss of identity turned into many kinds of personal struggles and issues: eating disorder, drinking, and hurting.

When she finally told someone, she began her journey towards healthy living. Her story shows that there’s no shame in asking for help and caring for one’s own life.


We are having honest talk about healthy living. We will talk about hard topics like sexuality, depression, anxiety, family history, mental illness. There is no shame in sharing one’s pain.
