    Why adverse childhood experiences don't have to define your adulthood

    Are you worried that adversity that you faced in your childhood is negatively effecting your life as an adult?

    Standing up for your beliefs with Dami Im

    Standing up for your beliefs with Dami Im

    In this episode, Cass is joined by Dami Im, who captured all of our hearts when she won The X-Factor Australia in 2013. Dami began her singing career playing to grandmas in Korean churches before her life was forever changed when she entered a singing competition on television with no expectation of winning. Since then, she's released a string of hit albums and singles, and she became Eurovision royalty on 2016, when she earned the highest score ever achieved by an Australian entry with her smash hit 'Sound of Silence.' Behind the scenes, Dami's creative was being stifled by the very people that were supposed to be helping her. Her story is one of sacrifice, determination and faith.
