My Raw Truth
In this very special episode of FUELED, I fully embrace vulnerability to share my raw truth – the twists and turns, triumphs and disappointments of my journey that have brought me to where I am today, both personally and professionally. We often think we know someone – who they are, where they’re coming from, what they stand for. But the reality for many of us is that there are aspects of ourselves that we don’t often show to others, and experiences that we may not talk much about, yet have truly shaped who we are today. It’s my hope that my story might inspire, and I am honored to share it with you.
