Oakland, CA–October 05, 2012 It is no accident that the global “It Gets Better” campaign has profoundly impacted countless young lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people facing harassment. Now, a Mills College student has stepped up to tell her inspirational story on an episode of the Emmy®-nominated MTV special devoted to the campaign.

“If I hadn’t come to college, Mills College in particular, I couldn’t have gotten where I am today,” she says, explaining that Mills’ culture of inclusivity helped her decide to take part in the “It Gets Better Project” and, when approached by MTV, to share her story with viewers around the world.
