Justin Wren was bullied his entire life.
But through the sport and martial art of wrestling, he found an outlet. The discipline and focus of the training, along with the support of his coaches and teammates, helped him to believe in himself, conquer depression, gain confidence, and find his tribe. Today, Justin is passionate about sharing his story with organizations, schools, academies and youth events in order to break the lifelong chains of bullying.
