Kara Angell sent a message to Satya Nadella that said:
My name is Kara Angell, and I am 16 years old. For around a year I have been speaking out against the stigma which surrounds mental health. I have spoken on WBTV news, Connected with listeners of Serenity Now Podcast, and I have recently started working with my district senator to end conversion therapy in North Carolina. I had the pleasure of speaking at a press conference in Raleigh.
With my advocacy, I began to create a business and a non profit named RippleLife Workshops and RippleLife, respectively.
I aim to provide mental health workshops to teenagers, the non profit would take these workshops into Teen Homeless Shelters and Juvenile Detention Centers.
My reason for reaching out today is because I wish to develop an app to help establish connectivity, bring awareness about mental health, and enforce the idea that we are truly never alone in our struggles. I have created an app prototype.
I was wondering if you would be willing to give me suggestions or networks to make my goals of helping people become a reality. I find you to be a brilliant and would love to hear anything you have to say.
Thank you very much for your time.
