Episode 1: Join us on this Journey

Nicole and Sam welcome you to the FIERCE Athlete Podcast! From a very awkward first encounter to concurrent hip surgeries, these two friends and former D1 athletes have been through it all, and they are excited to welcome you into the journey to becoming a FIERCE Athlete.

We are female athletes being raw and real about the joys and struggles of sport on and off the field. We share how faith can both heal our wounds and reveal true beauty.

On this first episode we introduce you to the purpose of this podcast- to provide a platform for female athletes to share their stories, to discuss the issues of sport and life, and to form a community of like-minded FIERCE athletes. We discuss how we met as friends and how themes of identity and beauty have led us to a deeper realization of our purpose in sport and in life.
