The best point I took out is gratitude and anxiety are like fire and water. They cannot live together. Lets choose gratitude!

What a Courageous, Articulate Young Woman

This interview should be shown in every school.

Bashie’s late mother was also an articulate, intelligent woman and it is clear that even in her struggles, Bashie very clearly emulates her. In His wisdom, Hashem has chosen Bashie to be one of His very special shluchas to help countless other people.

Thank you for this enlightening, inspiring and very educational interview.

G-d Bless you and Chabad.org

You are a true light. Thank you for being vulnerable enough to help others feel seen and heard by sharing your story! And major kol hakavod to Chabad.org for being the ones to host and promote this. We need more stories like this because we are NOT alone, but that is only helpful if we KNOW it. G-d bless you Bashie and may Hashem help you to continue this extremely important aspect of your shlichus!

Thank you for sharing
