Tera Armel

Kingston, ON
Tera Armel is a fourth year Life Sciences student at Queen's University. She is from Thornhill, Ontario, and is the oldest of 5 siblings. Mental illness impacted her life since she was a young child, but her mental health crisis in Grade 12 changed everything. She has since become a dedicated mental health advocate, and feels that sharing her experiences gives her a greater understanding of her own journey. Tera hopes she can empower others, and help reduce the stigma around bipolar disorder.
