Months after founding the website TeenzTalk, Ghaffari, second from left, spoke with international teens at the Yale program about methods to overcome stress.
When Nadia Ghaffari went to Yale University this summer for a global program for high school students, she made friends from countries such as Pakistan and Ghana. They discussed more than TV shows and Snapchat, though – they also shared their experiences with mental health.
“We talked about issues of stress and pressure,” said Ghaffari, a junior at Los Altos High School. “I realized it’s not just here, it’s a worldwide issue.”
