After finishing recording this episode with Pavan, I sent a message to our Team Slack channel immediately highlighting that if you were ever in doubt of why we do what we do, listen to this episode. Because Pavan’s story here is the power of the RNT Transformation Journey in full effect, as he talks about how starting RNT became the catalyst for him to reveal the biggest secret of his life to his parents, and to finally open up about his sexuality with them. It’s unfortunate in many communities, the topic of sexuality is still taboo, and in many cases, not accepted, and in this episode, Pavan speaks to the truth of it, and how he managed to take this leap to finally live as his most authentic and truest self.
