In this episode of our podcast, On The Mend, Elle is joined by showrunner Jackie Fernandez. Jackie is an Emmy Award-winning television host. She opened up about her devastating first breakup, how it affected her during a vulnerable period of her life, and how she recovered. This happened as a student in her early twenties, so she gives advice to her 21-year-old self, who may or may not have been a completely different person than who she is now. We think our younger menders would definitely want to hear what she and Elle have to say about young love and college relationships.

She goes on to tell us how she avoided therapy at all costs at first but now sees how incredibly beneficial it is, and what made her change her mind. Listen in to hear the biggest lesson she’s learned through heartbreak, and what her go-to breakup vices are. You can find the episode on Podcasts or SoundCloud.
