We Are Essex

Rebecca's story

"When you’re depressed you don’t want to talk about it and no one can really see it, so it’s something you have to deal with yourself."

Depression is my biggest struggle right now. I think it’s a really big thing. I’ve got a cold at the moment and you can see I’ve got a cold and people talk about it, but when you’re depressed you don’t want to talk about it and no one can really see it, so it’s something you have to deal with yourself. I think it’s just that step where you need to find that one person to tell when you haven’t told anyone yet, it’s a struggle. I think for me now it’s a lot better because I have told people.

I just want to be happy. It’s so cliché, but I just want a big family and dogs. I want to have enough money to live on a farm and adopt cows. I’ve seen so many videos of cows and I really want a pet cow, so I’ll be happy once I’ve got my family and have my cows on my farm. I want to have loads of animals.

My happiest moments are all orientated around my family so anything that happens with my family I’m happiest about. I’m half Filipino so I have a lot of family on my mum’s side but my dad’s family is quite small; my mum’s family live in the Philippines so I don’t get to see them often.

 If I had one motto, it would be to take the opportunities you’re given.
