A Way in the Wilderness
A Journey from Depression and Isolation to Progress and Peace
By Victoria L. Becker
When my summer study abroad plans were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I felt in my gut that this was the time to share my story. After months of researching, writing, editing, designing, and marketing, I self-published A Way in the Wilderness on November 10th, 2020.
A Way in the Wilderness tells the story of my sophomore year of college. When my sophomore experience didn’t meet my impossibly high expectations, I fell victim to anxiety and depression. I hope that my book encourages college women to acknowledge their struggles, do the hard work of healing, and share their story with others.
Writing this book is my greatest accomplishment to date, and it would not've been possible without the encouragement and continued support from my family, friends, mentors, professors, and role-models.
