Elaina’s platform focuses on mental health and suicide. “Mental health affects everyone. After losing my best friend to suicide in January 2021, mental health and suicide became close to home for me. I lost my grandfather to suicide when I was 11," Uzzle said. "When I lost my best friend to suicide, I made it a mission to help save as many people as I possibly can. There's no face for suicide.” She hopes to write a Sunsets for Suicide book to show that everyone goes through their own battle with mental health. Her platform has helped guide her to wanting to become a lawyer. “When people are going through times where they need a lawyer, they're going through a very vulnerable state. With me being involved in the mental health world, I can help people with that on a personal level,” To read more of Elaina's blog follow this link.
