Jasper Benitez

Jasper Benitez is a Senior at Florida Atlantic University. Jasper serves the FAU community as an Elite Owl Leadership Ambassador and FAU Red Jacket. Jasper is passionate about ending the stigma that surrounds those diagnosed with a mental health disorder. To accomplish this, Jasper believes that people living with mental health disorders must be transparent and unafraid to share their diagnosis with the world. But this, in Jasper's opinion, is not possible until one is first proud of their diagnosis. It is Jasper's goal to continue to share their story in order to inspire others to be proud of all that they are.
