My story is on something that happened to me when I was 14 years old: I tried to commit suicide and I landed in a mental institution.

I share my story about what it was like and why I did it. I interview my mom, the doctor who counseled me at the time, my friend from the institution, and I talk about how I've changed since then.

Linda was mentored by Subrata De.

I really liked your story because you shared it out and gave other teen girls a lesson that it ain't worth risking your life over a boy that don't want to be with you.
