Rewriting the Stigma of Mental Illness | Paige Freeman | TEDxYouth@SAS,
Although sometimes not apparent, mental disorders are more common than we think. As a person struggling with multiple mental disorders, Paige Freeman vividly illustrates the consequences they have on everyday life, the stigmas society places on mental illness, and speaks out about her own experience for the first time.

Paige moved from Brooklyn to Singapore in 2006, where she has attended the Singapore American School for the past nine years. She has not yet uncovered her ultimate goal in life, and is just fine with that. However, she does have some problems she’d like to fix along the way. She enjoys writing, making art, and singing — in 2013, she sang a solo at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Paige is partial to rainy afternoons and listening to good music.
