We had a really great conversation with the Canadian Rachel McBride. They are non-binary and want to explain to you a little more about this. Next to that, we talked about mental health issues, helping each other and we discussed some bucket list events. Enjoy! "Because of the sport, I have this platform and I have people listening. There are other non-binary folks out there listening or people who are questioning their gender. Or there are people listening that are learning a whole lot about this world I didn't know about. I hope that this personal connection helps folks learn and feel that compassion and empathy."
