Ep. 11: Joey's story of perseverance and body image through having a Congenital Heart Defect
Joey Williamson is on the podcast this week. He is a congenital heart defect survivor, a mentor to many and an all around inspirational person to be around.
Joey and Bri actually met in the Mended Little Hearts group back in 2014 because Bri also has a congenital heart defect. Joey talks about his body image in relation to his scar from his surgery. He explains how his 6th grade teacher was the most impactful person in his life and helped him learn not to care what others said about his scar. He also gives people advice to keep persevering through life and to find someone that’s doing what you want to do and ask if they would be your mentor.
Joey also has his own blog called Hollywood’s World of Sports and this month is it’s 15th anniversary. He talks about his sports passion, but also about his own personal life journey here as well.
