This is the awkward teen who didn’t quite fit in. Who wanted to rebel, but didn’t want to disappoint her parents. Who was smart, but didn’t like school. Who had friends, but wasn’t “cool”. This is the teen who was always the friend and never the girlfriend. This is the teen who contemplated suicide and risky behavior because she wanted to feel something. This is the teen who kept going, struggling, making mistakes and learning the hard way, to grow up and be a woman to be proud of. This is the woman who is still trying to decide what to be when she grows up, what her legacy will be, and how to prove the naysayers wrong. This is what W1LD Coaching is all about.
