#10: Mental Reset (Taylor Behnke)

We talked to YouTube Creator, Taylor Behnke about what it’s like to have to return home after a downward depressive spiral in order to reset mentally. Taylor has such a unique perspective, which led to a very insightful conversation with many different layers to it. In addition to focusing on returning home and doing a hard reset mentally, we touched on several topics with Taylor such as family, death, grief, home, resetting, creating online video, activism, political campaigning, being a female, black, and queer creator with a public audience, harassment, and creating for change and empowerment.
