It is courageous and brave when we step out and try to make a change in the world, but it can be so easy to lose ourselves in the process. In this episode, I want to encourage you around some of the things I spoke about on another podcast; about how your identity matters, and how we need to be fully ourselves in every aspect of our lives. 

You are dynamic and spectacular, you are a whole person, and I want people to see every aspect of who you are, so let’s dive in.
