Reagan Kremer is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in social work at UNT. Kremer, who grew up with her nine siblings in Independence, Iowa, moved to Texas in 2017 and received her associate degree from North Central Texas College before transferring to UNT in 2020. She is passionate about advocating for better mental health resources and hopes to further challenge the stigmas that surround mental illness. Kremer, a first-generation college student, has battled her own mental health issues since she was 15, and says the support she has received from others has been not only life changing, but lifesaving. Her personal experience has deepened her passion for mental health advocacy, and she eventually plans to pursue her master’s degree through UNT’s social work program.
