This episode features guest Kevin McLemore, an author and podcast host who experienced his own journey of self acceptance throughout his childhood. Abandoned by his mother at a young age, McLemore found himself drawn to juvenile delinquency. It was not until he found a passion for football in high school that he was able to dig himself out of a hole and learn to be true to himself. Despite nearly making it through college without basic reading and writing skills, McLemore has written three books to date with two more to be published soon.
Formerly known as Bouncing Back, Your Best Life is hosted by Lisa Bien, a professional marketing strategist and Temple Public Relations Professor, who created this program in an effort to give Temple students and other viewers insight into their own misgivings concerning self worth while presenting real life examples of personal struggle with self acceptance.
