I want to start this article by saying that most of my friends and family do not know this about me. I’ve kept my story about suicide a secret for a long time. But recently I’ve noticed a growing number of people who suffer like I’ve suffered. I’ve also noticed many people who were not able to make it out of the dark night.
I write this for you. I write this so that you know you are not alone. You are noticed, you are loved and you are wanted in this life.
Know who you are, dress in accordance of who you are and love in spirit and truth of who you are - these three things, while not an exhaustive list, are what I wish every college student knew about true womanhood.

Since the pontificates of Pope Paul VI and John Paul II, the Roman Catholic Church has been commissioned to engage and embrace the world with God's message of love once more with ‘new methods, new ardor and new expression.’ It has come to be phrased, 'the new evangelization.'
For FOCUS, this means meeting college students across the nation where they are and challenging them to examine the meaning and purpose of their lives. Through personal relationships and friendship, we offer college students the true peace and fulfillment they seek in the good news of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic faith, inviting them to answer His calling in their lives.
