Jenna Martorana is a graduate student at Kutztown University where she will soon graduate with a master's degree in school counseling. Mental health has become Jenna's passion, which is why she partners with the National Alliance on Mental Illness as a youth ambassador and Ending The Silence school presenter. As someone who lives with mental illnesses, Jenna's message to everyone is that it's okay to not be okay. This message is what inspired "Pearl's Purpose" and Jenna hopes that anyone who reads it knows they're not alone and that hope exists.
