Do we have control of our true happiness? Jackie Foti explores this question and discusses how in this day in age, happiness is often overlooked by the desire for material wants and "needs".

Jackie Foti is a senior at Sacred Heart Cathedral and has lived in San Francisco her entire life. She is a competitive athlete with a passionate interest in the psychology and spirituality behind happiness. As a woman in today's society who has struggled with self-concept and the opinion of others, Jackie has learned the value of being mindfully in-tune with her inner self. She intends to continue her passion for this topic by majoring in Psychology in college.
