Beauty Queen, Jill Turbak, has struggled with anxiety and depression since she was young. She attempted suicide at age 13 and since becoming Mrs. South Dakota International, she has taken on a subject that is very important to me - mental health. She is lifting the shame stigma on talking, reaching, and equipping us to better understand the trouble of those suffering.
