"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say , I used everything you gave me"

Hello everyone! Welcome to Episode 15 of the Chasing Bravery Podcast. Today I am speaking with the lovely Joy Miller. I am so excited about this episode because it truly accomplished what I envisioned Chasing Bravery becoming. Joy is sharing her true story, and she is doing so because she believes that other women deserve to hear it. While I won’t give away any details of what that story is (it is her’s to tell after all) I will say that she showed immense bravery in doing this, and I am so honored to be the platform through which she decided to make her truth public.

What I can tell you about Joy as an introduction is this. Joy comes to us from Ireland (and we are happy to have her), on a running scholarship. Joy discusses her experience making the transition into college and also to another country, as well as her subsequent run in with the police for a drinking fine that ultimately cost her her scholarship. This story has a happy ending however, and joy shares how she overcame her drinking issues, and went on to re-enroll in school and ultimately become an All American in her beloved sport of running.
