    I know that you are going to relate to today’s guest SO MUCH, and not because you’re an elite athlete like her, but because you’ve probably dealt with, or are dealing with a lot of the same internal battles that she has. Today, we’re hanging out with Victoria Garrick, who is a senior volleyball star at The University of Southern California. Not only is she is a four-year division I starter, team captain, two-time NCAA elite eight contender, and 2015 PAC-12 champion-- aka a total badass on the court, she is also an advocate for mental health and body image struggles in athletes and young women all over the world. Through her own struggles with depression, disordered eating, and body image, she has learned how to rise up and reach her goals no matter what it takes. Victoria is even a TEDx speaker, and her talk “Athletes and Mental Health: The Hidden Opponent” has led to tons of media exposure and opportunities for her to shed light on the internal battles that many athletes, and actually young adults in general, are facing. Whether you are an elite athlete or just workout for fun, I know that you’ll relate so much to Victoria’s stories and wisdom around chasing goals, perseverance, overcoming bad body image, and picking yourself up when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders.
