Hi Jon
I really thank you for sharing this
I knew of you years ago when I was heavily involved in the fitness industry and always admired your work but I also had my own struggle with depression and sucide attempts. It’s taken years but I’m finally starting to understand how to deal with my mental illness so it was so nice to come across your video. The way you explain things is amazing. If there is ever anything you could ever need for your project please shout out.

  • After growing up as a child soldier in Africa, Eric bravely sought help with his drug addiction in Australia despite marginalisation and disconnection.
.
His message is: it is never too late, and life can always improve.
.
Powerful words from a powerful experience. If he can do it, you can too...
  • Meet Eric.
.
Born in Africa in the midst of civil war, he witnessed mass murder and rape as a child.
.
He was then promoted to become a child soldier where he himself had to perform acts of violence.
.
He let us into the excruciating experience that led him to abuse drugs. Today, he is clean and living in Australia.
.
While there are still aspects of himself he is trying to forgive, he has become a man that he is proud of.
.
Documentary coming soon. 🎬
  • This International Women’s Day, we are celebrating female founders. Women who have the courage to follow their dreams, and make things happen despite what people are saying around them... really inspire us.
.
Of course, we have to acknowledge our founder @sophiephamofficial for braving her story - living it, and then telling it.
.
Though controversial, her fall from aspiring psychiatrist to sex worker gave her the insights that informed our mission at @theintrovertproject: to share courageous stories of personal transformation and to inspire people towards higher purpose.
.
Today, she works as an intuitive coach dedicated to helping people find their hidden gifts so that they can tap into their greatest potential. She is also an author, storyteller, speaker, filmmaker and artist.
.

  • Truthbomb from our founder @sophiephamofficial
.
We love uncovering the real story behind people and brands. We have been conditioned - in society and in business - about what is right and wrong... what works and what doesn’t.
.
Things are rapidly changing with modern technology, and we are now seeing new perspectives and possibilities for what can be.
.
The stories we crave today are stories that are richer, deeper, and truer.
  • “I believe in humanity. I think that’s the only difference.
.
You either believe in us or you don’t. But ultimately, what you believe is a reflection of you.
.
When you have discovered your own potential to create change and experience freedom, joy, love... you see that it is possible for anyone - which is humanity, collectively.
.
I don’t believe in good or bad people. I just believe in people who are further along the path than others.
.
And we make mistakes - we’re human.
.
These stories at The Introvert Project reflect our humanity, but more importantly, they reflect our potential.”
.
Words from our founder @sophiephamofficial 🙏🏼
  • Curious about working with Sophie Pham?
.
As the founder, she also conducts the interviews for our stories.
.
Her investigative process involves a high degree of compassion and intuition to discover the real story behind each person’s mission.
.
“Often, the real story is much more beautiful than the story we’re being sold.” - @sophiephamofficial
