    S4: EP008 Kristen Prewitt, I’m just your “average Jane” on a mission to motivate and lift others up while being open about the mental health issues so many of us face. I was blessed to grow up alongside foster brothers and sisters which has exposed me to all different walks of life. It has taught me to see things differently than most, to be compassionate and perceptive. Everyone has challenges they face, including mental illness, and we all have the capability to embrace one another with kindness. My two sons continue to help me grow in ways I never expect, they keep me on my toes with their shenanigans, and they’re always willing to taste test my cooking.
