Noah Beck Episode

I loved this episode! It was a lot of fun hearing about how he viewed his life and how he ultimately lets everyone know that he’s a normal person just like everyone else, with his own individual issues. I could also relate heavily because I l was one of those kids who had coaches as parents and how they helped push me to be the best version of myself. Great episode!
