7/23/18 9:15am pst - Elena Stowell joined Janeane to talk about her story, Frango & Chicken


LISTEN to today's conversation with Elena Stowell!

Elena Stowell’s Frango & Chicken, a beautiful story about positivity and how some things seem impossible, but with the right attitude and the help of a friend, you can do more than you ever thought you could.

The adventures of Frango and Chicken are inspired by the true story of a young man in Brazil who has had to overcome physical challenges since infancy. By maintaining a positive attitude and sense of humor, he shows all of us how to live without limits.



A PERSONAL NOTE FROM ELENA STOWELL

"Oh you're a writer."
"No, I'm a biology teacher"
I'm still working to add my new label to the others, mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, teammate. Flowing with the Go went from being a therapy project to being a cathartic experience that helped free me from the lonely and desperate hold that grief had on me.
I found a sport, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, that helped me heal and provided a support group like no other. With my spirit renewed, Flowing with the Go has now inspired me to give back. After taking the Portuguese translation of my book to Brazil, I was touched by the positive way BJJ inspired the young children in the Projeto Social to work hard to improve themselves and their lives. My book has opened doors I never knew were there.
