AGNES NTAPARA

 
 

Originally from Tanzania, Agnes graduated from MSU in May of 2019.

In the wake of COVID-19, Agnes has experienced "a lot of sleepless nights. A lot of times where I get distracted from working when I'm thinking about what could happen. It's hard to take it a day at a time, but the best you can do now is take life a day at a time."

"We are people too, and we didn't ask for these conditions... it got to the point where it feels like we're not getting treated like humans. Mental health is very important, and this is affecting our mental health."

"I wish MSU invests more in mental health, because it's very crucial to students, especially when they leave campus... After experiences how to live alone, and how I had to figure out how to manage, that's when I knew they need to focus on mental health."
