    47. An honest convo about disordered eating, body neutrality, PCOS, and weight gain with Nat Kunz

    47. An honest convo about disordered eating, body neutrality, PCOS, and weight gain with Nat Kunz

    The new year is finally here, and along with it often comes the onslaught of messaging that you should work out harder, eat differently, and make yourself smaller in 2021. You know the drill: new year, new you. But why does it feel like that messaging applies exclusively to weight and size?

    To be clear, wanting to work out or eat more vegetables are not bad resolutions. They're just not the only resolutions that you can make going into 2021.

    Your body, you know, the one that just got you through a traumatic and unprecedented nine months, deserves to spend the next 12 doing what makes it feel good: inside and out.

    So, what better way to start off the new year than with an honest conversation about the struggles and realities of disordered eating with my lovely friend, Nat Kunz. Nat and I danced together in high school and she is currently a fitness instructor. 

    Last year, I opened up about my own struggles with disordered eating, and even though it was extremely terrifying to open up about it publicly, I'm so glad I did it because so many others have reached out to me, telling me they've gone through it themselves or have seen a loved one go through it. It can be daunting to share something so personal, but the best way to face those fears is the talk about it because chances are, someone else has gone through the same thing. I'm so glad Nat reached out to me and I'm so proud of her for talking about her experience with disordered eating so openly. 

    Today, we talk about her journey struggling with disordered eating in high school and as a young adult, how she learned to love and accept her body, the positives of weight gain, PCOS and period troubles, and any advice she has for others going through it. 

    Please note: we are NOT medical professionals by any means, so if you require any medical attention or advice, please ask your doctor. :)

    I really hope you enjoy this one!

    46. Meet my COLLEGE ROOMIES! - Post Grad Struggles, Navigating Relationships & Dating, Living in a house with 4 girls

    I thought it would be fun to end the year with a fun episode! Please note that we do swear and talk about mature content in this episode. 

    I am joined by my college roommates, Veronica, Rose, Morgan & Caroline. We all lived together for over 3 years. These gals were so instrumental in making my college experience so memorable, and honestly, if it wasn't for them, I know I wouldn't have enjoyed my university experience as much. Living all together was seriously the dream - imagine a never-ending sleepover with your best friends.

    We are all at different points in our lives and career, so I thought hearing their individual perspectives about post-grad life would benefit a lot of people out there. In this episode, we chat about the biggest post-grad struggles, finding a job, relationships, and dating in college and during a pandemic, advice we would give to our younger selves and we end the episode with some fun rapid questions. I hope you enjoy it!

    45. Nadya Okamoto - Ending PERIOD poverty & stigma, Author of PERIOD POWER, Co-founder of August

    45. Nadya Okamoto - Ending PERIOD poverty & stigma, Author of PERIOD POWER, Co-founder of August

    Nadya Okamoto is a 22-year-old Harvard student. In early 2020, Okamoto co-founded August, a lifestyle brand working to reimagine periods. As the Today Show describes, “August is a growing online community aiming to "re-imagine and redefine the period experience to be powerful and dignified," with members who engage in conversations about how to properly use menstrual cups or what it's like to be a transgender man having a period, for example.” 

    Nadya is also the Founder of PERIOD (period.org), an organization fighting to end period poverty and stigma that she founded at the age of 16. Under her leadership as Executive Director for five years, PERIOD addressed over 1.5 million periods and registered over 800 campus chapters in all 50 states and 50 other countries. In 2017, Nadya ran for public office in Cambridge, MA at age 19 — at the time, becoming the youngest Asian American to run. 

    In 2018, Nadya published her debut book, Period Power: A Manifesto for the Menstrual Movement. She has been recognized on the lists of Forbes 30 under 30, Bloomberg 50 “Ones to Watch” and People Magazine's Women Changing the World. 

    In this episode we chat about her experience with trauma and PTSD, dealing with backlash and being "canceled", holding herself accountable and finding her identity, and why she is so passionate about ending period poverty.

    44. Mike Sleath - Shawn Mendes' Drummer

    44. Mike Sleath - Shawn Mendes' Drummer

    Mike Sleath is a drummer and percussionist, who’s energy, creativity and style has seen him perform all over the world on some of the biggest stages. After spending over a decade globetrotting with an array of different established artists, Mike has found a home in the last 5 years as the full time touring drummer for Grammy-nominated artist, Shawn Mendes.

    He’s also played alongside many more amazing artists like John Mayer, Miley Cyrus, Camila Cabello, Khalid, and Zedd to name a few, Mike has made a name for himself on the world stage.

    This is my first time interviewing a musician on the podcast, and although I’m no a musician myself, I truly respect the talent and dedication that Mike has. I think he’s going to offer a really great perspective on the music industry and his success wasn’t overnight, it definitely took a lot of years of practice and determination to get to where he’s at today.

    In this episode, we chat about how he started playing the drums, facing rejection from Humber College 3 times, meeting Shawn and playing for him the first time, how he prepares himself mentally for high-pressure situations like the Grammys and Jimmy Fallon, his setup, advice he has for young musicians, and some of his favorite songs he likes to play.

    43. Mackenzie Rigg - Kicking Stage 4 Brain Cancer at 25 years old

    43. Mackenzie Rigg - Kicking Stage 4 Brain Cancer at 25 years old

    Today's guest is the wonderful and inspiring Mackenzie Rigg. Mackenzie and I shared a few classes together during our business degree at the University of Victoria. When he wasn't busy pitching business ideas or attending case competitions, Mackenzie played 5 years on the Vikes Soccer team and was captain from 2018-2019. 

    Unfortunately, Mack was diagnosed this July with brain cancer, officially known as Astrocytoma Grade IV. When I first heard the news, it broke my heart and I know everyone around him was just in complete utter shock. It was so saddening to hear, but Mack has really made light of the situation and is an inspiration for us all. His girlfriend and some of his close friends have set up a fundraiser for brain cancer research. The fundraiser, called Vikes Kick Cancer, saw members of the men’s and women’s soccer teams at UVic participate in a 270 KM relay at the end of November. So far, the fundraiser has raised over $70,000, far surpassing its initial goal of $10,000.

    In this episode, we talk about how he first found out about his diagnosis and his initial reaction, how he told his loved ones, what he's been up to, and the Vikes Kick Cancer Fundraiser. 

    Please check out the Vikes Kick Cancer fundraiser and donate if you can. I hope you enjoy this episode!
