Ep 57: Torrey Drake on Bullying


Filmmaker and personal trainer Torrey Drake shares his painful past of being bullied as a child, starting in middle school and continuing on through high school.  Torrey describes the years of physical, emotional, and mental violence and aggression he experienced and the impact it had on his life, leading him to bully others as a way to cope. Torrey’s story is filled with failure, in terms of how the school system failed to protect him and how his friends failed to stand up for him, and yet, his ability to gain support from his parents and true friends, and learn ways to persevere and thrive, is a true inspiration.
