According to Mukami, anxiety has robbed her of memories and experiences as many times she is torn between convincing herself she is good despite her anxiety convincing her that she is not good enough.

“I have big dreams and big plans and great ambition, but I am always hesitant to publish an article, Post a YouTube Video, or even a simple photo. My Anxiety always manages to convince me that the work is not good enough and that I am not Good Enough,” she narrated.

She further encouraged people to have the strength and courage to talk about mental health challenges as it plays a huge role in the healing process.
