The One Percent & Health podcast is devoted to celebrating those who are flourishing in both their professional and personal lives, despite dealing with a health condition. In the eighth episode, we delve into Sabe's childhood and his mother's incredible journey from Richfield, Utah to Reston, Virginia on I-70. Sabe's formative years were marked by two distinct personas - that of an athlete and a conflicted soul. He shares his struggles with growing up in an alcoholic environment and how his family's love and support helped him overcome these challenges.
In this emotionally charged episode, Sabe opens up about his rebellious nature in early years and in High School, where he excelled as a 3-year varsity quarterback. He also talks about his dark moments, including a week-long stay in the Fairfax ward after a psychotic break, which eventually led to his diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Despite the obstacles he has faced, Sabe draws inspiration from his mother's unwavering strength and uses her example to navigate life's ups and downs.
