#15 with Blaze - Mental Health Matters: An Influencers Journey
Join us as we dive into the world of mental health, influencers, and just straight-up enjoyment of life. Today I sat down with Blaze Angel, a young social media influencer and surfer from the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Blaze had a tough time through high school after being bullied to the point where she repeated a year and even considered dropping out multiple times. She would find out well after school that she actually had clinical depression the entire time and this would take her on a whole new path to freedom and fulfilment.   Blaze spent her younger years building a profile for herself on social media, only to have her Instagram hacked at 40k followers! We spoke about how this impacted her mental health and what it meant to her at the time. Her new profile is all about empowering people to speak up about mental health and ultimately live a life of happiness.   Blaze is an inspiring human with a pretty cool story!
