In this episode, Jess sits down with actor, producer, and activist Monique Coleman, who is best known for playing ‘Taylor Mckessie’ in Disney’s “High School Musical” franchise. Monique reveals a story she doesn’t usually share publicly about a traumatic accident she had as a child and how that introduced her to the concept of mortality at an early age.
Jess and Monique talk about their recoveries from traumatic experiences and how facing their pain helps them heal and face loss. Now decades later, Monique has dedicated her life to a path of self-discovery with the intention of uplifting women and girls around the world along with her. This conversation really dives into how building The Good Life using strength, fortitude, and self-compassion can be more valuable than any amount of fame or fortune.
