Former reporter battles depression with beauty

Many of the pictures Aker posts are in Hawaii, where she lives.

A former news reporter is battling her depression -- with the click of a button.

Danner Evans met Sahar Aker when she interned at KAKE-TV in Wichita, Ks. Aker was the health reporter at the time.

But behind Aker's wide smile, loomed a paralyzing demon -- depression.

Part of Aker's therapy while battling depression was to find beauty in one thing every day.

Aker started documenting those moments on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #ichoosebeauty.

Aker is challenging you to find the beauty in one thing every day -- and #ichoosebeauty.

Aker is also launching a new brand based on inspirational words -- things like "hold on", "just be" and "breathe."

She's donating a piece of her sales to Mental Health America.
