Since he was in third grade, Discovery High senior Zach Perry has suffered from anxiety attacks.

He is one of 6.8 million people or 3.1 percent of the U.S. population who lives with this problem every day.

“It shaped how I grew up,” he said.

Recently, Perry took the opportunity with his senior project to try and help those who don’t suffer from the issue have a better understanding of what it’s like to battle anxiety.
