Connections Untold - the stories behind the faces

Hello, I'm Ricky Weaver and welcome to the Connections Untold podcast. The premise for this podcast is simple; I talk to amazing people and share their stories. It's my belief that in sharing our stories, we have the power to learn from and be inspired by each other. You'll get to hear about a whole range of topics, from mental health, the highs and lows of running a business, addiction, what it means to be truly happy and much more.... Show More

"No matter our background or our issues, if you can get to that place where you're content with who you are, with all your imperfections, it's a very powerful place to be"

It's safe to say that Sarah Stephenson-Hunter, Stonewall's East Midlands Role Model of the Year 2018, has had an eventful life. 

Struggling from health issues to her own gender identity earlier in life, it was only after a loss in the family did she finally have the courage to become the person who she always knew she was.

Her story showed me that the only way to true happiness is to accept who we are and to embrace our individuality. It also showed me that not taking the easy road is sometimes the only option. Yep, going on that tried and tested path may be safe and easy, but it’s only through challenging ourselves, by making mistakes and by learning from these mistakes, that we grow and are able to find out and become who we really are. 

A massive thanks to Sarah for her time, for welcoming me into her home and sharing her story for the benefit of others.
