Wes Woodson's story
Wes Woodson's story begins in a small suburban neighborhood where he struggled with belonging and perfectionism. Although being a person of color, while living in a predominately white neighborhood, Wes often felt "too white for the black kids and too black for the white kids". After being diagnosed with a rare skin condition, Wes struggled with severe social anxiety.
After multiple attempts to suppress his social anxiety through "re-inventing himself" or using sports to avoid his emotions, Wes then turned to romantic relationships to fill the void of never feeling good enough. After becoming a survivor of domestic violence, Wes Woodson has gone on to tell his story around the country to inspire others that it is okay to not be okay.
