The Motivation

A Call to Action

University of Notre Dame

South Bend, IN

October 19th, 2019


It started with a single question, “How are you doing mentally?” as opposed to a simple “How are you?” Asking this individually to six Notre Dame students in the span of 20 minutes, Patrick received the same response - “I’m not doing well. I feel like I’m the only one going through these struggles.” Patrick had seen enough. Marching to the dining hall on a chilly October 2019 day, Patrick asked himself one question… “How can I let people know that they’re not alone?” 

We all battle fear, doubt, and mental struggles. Every single person on this Earth. But why do so many of us feel like we need to put on a “mask” or live someone else’s life as a result? After three years of hearing the struggles and vulnerable stories of thousands of students, a common theme emerged - Everyone was struggling, but no one wanted to show it. 

In response, Patrick created “Living As You,” a motivational podcast designed to inspire individuals to live more authentically as themselves, “take the leap” in times of uncertainty, and ultimately tap into the power of self-love & acceptance. By fully living and embracing our own unique selves, each of us has the ability to change the world & achieve anything.
