Wow, I know someone who gave a Ted talk! This is so cool, Josie; congratulations! You seemed very confident, and I think you were very clear and well-spoken. I also appreciated your tips! I always wondered what a Sports Psychologist did. I never thought about identity crises in terms of comparative performance. Very interesting!
