About Us

Welcome to Choi Says Podcast! Thank you for making great choices and listening to Choi Says!Every alternating week, I speak briefly about my progress as an aspiring actress. I’ve only recently begun to realize that I want to pursue acting. I talk about my struggles with performance anxiety and my journey of trying to overcome that fear. My recent discovery of therapy is another huge piece of these episodes. I try to relate therapy and its role in helping me get over my stage fright.The other alternating weeks, I speak with my friends and discuss their lives and the hardships they had to overcome. Everyone walks different walks in life, but we all have hardships to overcome and goals we want to achieve.The purpose of this podcast really is to let everyone know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. We all have something. We are all living as hard as we can and there are hurdles in life. It’s really how you deal with those hardships that makes you who you are.Let’s all stand together and be there for one another. One world, one love.Email me at ChoiSaysPodcast@gmail.com for any feedback, questions, and advice column letters!KTHANKSBYE<3

Ep. 28 - My Mental Health Journey

Whoa Nelly...! In this episode I get real up close and personal. I had quite the journey in my mental health. I think the biggest chunk of it was rather I accepted my mental illness or not. I credit all you lovely people listening to this for allowing me to be open and vulnerable about something I am learning to become OK with myself. I sincerely hope that this episode reaches someone and helps someone. In feeling like you're not alone. In feeling that you can talk about your mental illness. In seeking help for something that's new to you. Just in knowing that we're all in this together. Here's an article I mention in the episode that I'd love for you to check out. READ IT!!!

Ep. 27 - The Invisible Illness

EThis week, my guest, Michael Lomas and I talk about how depression affected his life. How the stigma people had about depression made Michael stop seeking treatment at a young age. It wasn't until fairly recently, that he went back to getting treatment again and started being able to be more open about this. I connected with Michael's story in many ways and the brief conversation I had with him after the interview has helped me in a big way. Mostly in feeling less afraid to be open about my mental health and being less ashamed of it. Work in progress, though, right? Here's an article from the Harvard Medical School about the science behind depression so you can familiarize yourself with it a little. [What Causes Depression?](https://www.health.harvard.edu/mind-and-mood/what-causes-depression) -Harvard Health Publishing And here's a short 3-minute video with great visual to explain how the treatments work in relation to there receptors in the brain.

EIn this episode, my guest, Danny Longdon talks about the tragic death of his parents and how he's been dealing with it for the past 7 years.

Ep. 24 - 10 Principles of Burning Man and Choi

E***Before I begin, there's a weird glitch between 8:17-8:36 but it does stop and it does not come back!!! Sorry about it!!*** HELLO! If you follow my personal social media, you must know how much Burning Man FOMO I've been feeling this past week. So I thought it was only fitting to do an episode about it as well. I truly grew so much as a person from going to Burning Man ONE TIME. Sadly, I did not go this year, but will be there next year. But while we're all here, and not in Black Rock City, I wanted to share with you the 10 Principles of Burning Man. These 10 principles truly speak to me, and I think everyone should try to live by these principles all the time, on or off the playa. I want to tell you which one my favorite is, but I can't, because I truly love so many of them. But I will tell you which one I miss the most right now. It's Radical Self-Expression. Be yourself. Do you. Just go for it. I feel like the playa brought the full "me" out. I try to channel that version of me...

Ep. 23 - You'll Be OK. Don't Give Up

EThis week's guest, Raya Belmonte, and I talk about the many adversities she experienced in her life. Beginning in her childhood with lack of positive attention from the people in her life. This led to her causing a lot of trouble in her younger years and struggling with her self-worth. Raya opens up about the ways she's wronged others in her life because of how low she was feeling. Also, about how she ended up with significant others who treated her horribly, also due to how low she felt. She also talks about the amazing people she's met along the way who have been huge supports for her and her growth & healing process. This interview is definitely a story of an ongoing journey that Raya was so generous to share with us so openly. I say this in the intro, but I just want it in writing as well. If Raya were a color, she'd be glitter. You'll feel her energy immediately when you hear her voice. I hope you guys enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it with Raya.
