My Name Is Jason Melendez, I am a podcast producer, director, and host with over 100 hours of interview time. I have interviewed some of the most influential people in the world. I'm very passionate about my work, and aspire to be a paid motivational speaker. I'm a person who's had to face many adversities in life and I am now most of the way through my journey. I'm not a hero. I'm just an average person who didn't allow my past to define me. I have plans to be successful & independent in my career path and be able to have a flexible schedule that allows me to be with my loving family more. I am a strong advocate for mental health and hope to use this program to spread the word about ACEs.
