        A Student's Perspective: One Student's Story

        In this video, Courtney shares her personal story. Courtney grew up surrounded by substance abuse and addiction. In high school, she was removed from her home and placed into a dysfunctional foster care home, moving from an urban area to a rural county. After four years in foster care, Courtney had changed drastically — the outgoing student-athlete had withdrawn from the world. She describes how she felt she had lost herself and didn't know how to find her way back; she even considered suicide. But she finally did reach out for help, and through counseling and medication, is about to graduate from Kentucky State University with a degree in social work. She shares the strategies she still uses to keep a positive outlook.
