Alexis Ren ON: Breaking Negative Cycles and Letting Go of the Lies We Tell Ourselves

Alexis sits down with Jay Shetty to talk about how her late mother influenced her to be her own person, to always treat failures and heartbreaks as stepping stones to where she is headed, to validate pain and the lessons they teach, and to see the positivity in things life throws at you.

Alexis Ren is a model, actress, and one of the most influential personalities on social media. At 24, aside from being a strong advocate of mental health, women empowerment, and environmental protection, she has also built a strong community for women dealing with different mental and emotional issues as well as sharing her own life struggles and experiences.
