“I’m confident in who I am, what I want to be, how I feel, and I think that’s all that matters.”
Fernwood Fitness ambassador and tennis champion, Jelena Dokic joins us for a must-listen special length episode of our podcast, Fernwood Shine. Author, motivational speaker and vocal mental health advocate, tennis commentator and coach, Jelena’s story is one for every woman.
Her tennis career to date has been one packed full of amazing highs and some devastating lows, detailing her inspiring and devastating story in her autobiography, Unbreakable. Jelena’s resilience has taken her from strength to strength, bringing light to the darkness of the challenges of being a refugee, dealing with poverty, bullying, and abuse at the hands of her father and tennis coach.
Jelena talks openly with our host about her upcoming new book, body shaming, mental health, and believing there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As women, we can all relate to her story in some way or another, and this podcast is an essential piece of listening for all of us.
