The daughter of incoming New York City mayor Bill de Blasio opens up in a YouTube video about her drug use, alcoholism, and depression:

"It made it easier, the more I drank and did drugs, to share some common ground with people I wouldn't have," says Chiara de Blasio, Bill de Blasio's daughter. "It didn't start out as a huge thing for me but then it became a really huge thing for me."

The college student says she's opening up about her issues to help other who might be facing similar problems.
