British reality star helps struggling teen to attend prom

KEM CETINAY
Share

Twitter users are loving how Kem Cetinay came alongside a teen to help him accomplish a goal.

Kem Cetinay is best known for his performance on UK reality television show Love Island, but now he’s on people’s radar for helping a teenage boy to attend his prom.

After opening up about his own mental-health struggles with anxiety, Kem was introduced to Connor, a 16-year-old who experiences severe anxiety, in order to provide him with the support he needed to be able to attend his prom.

Twitter users loved it. Tweets of compassion, support, and empathy flooded in with many sharing that the watching Kem help Connor was even healing for them.

Speaking out about mental health can be a source of healing for yourself, for others, and for society as a whole. Let’s not underestimate the power of one voice or one act of compassion in moving toward a more understanding world.
