My Anxiety, finalist for HearSay Audio Prize 2015
15 October 2015

‘My Anxiety’ is a radio piece about the anxiety of moving through life with so many unknown factors. I wrote this piece as a method of trying to communicate my own anxieties to people around me. It was more than just a feeling of being overwhelmed – and through ‘My Anxiety’, I express how paralyzing these anxieties and pressures were for me.

I wanted to connect with other people that are going, or have gone, through a similar experience. To tell people that they’re not alone, and our anxieties are real. And while they may stem from us, these anxieties are built up from the weight of social pressures that permeate our lives.
