T.I.’s 18-Year-Old Daughter Opens Up About Her Own Struggle With Mental Illness: ‘I’m Simply Here To Give Light To Wherever There’s Darkness’

Famous American rapper T.I. has an 18-year-old daughter named Deyjah Harris. Deyjah earns the title of Chicks We Love for this week for so bravely opening up about her own struggle with mental illness.

In a video she posted on YouTube, she explained her reason for doing this was to try to help someone else who might be struggling with the same things.

“I’m simply here to give light to wherever there’s darkness,” she said.

Deyjah said that because she hasn’t seen anyone really speak about sensitive topics like this, she was motivated to make her video.

She revealed that anxiety and depression are something that she has been dealing with since she was about 11-years-old.

“Transparently speaking, depression and anxiety is something that I’ve been dealing with since about the age of 11,” Deyjah said.

Deyjah went on to say that she was bullied in the 6th grade, so she started to have severe self-esteem issues.
