Ethar Hamid is an aspiring writer, with her sights on becoming an essayist, poet, and memoirist. A goal she would like to accomplish through her writing is addressing the subject of mental illness. After suffering from depression and comorbid disorders, Ethar saw the importance of having support from others in the fight to attain mental health. So today, she tries to reach others who suffer from mental disorders with the message that there is as much hope (and happiness) for them as there is for anyone else.
Ethar is Sudanese-American, and is the youngest in her family.
She is an undergrad, studying creative writing.
