WEEK #50: SARAH BARNES-HUMPHREY
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a podcaster, entrepreneur and a catcher passionate about supply chain and women in sports. For 34 years I have played a form of baseball – softball, fastpitch, slo pitch and modified slo pitch and for majority of that time I have been behind the plate calling plays, pitches and just having a lot of fun. I currently have a media company in supply chain and an online marketplace for active women called sarahcaroline.com
Please share a story about an internal or external barrier you have faced.
I was teased, from Grade 5 through Grade 12, by various different people in different provinces for a variety of reasons. I have one example I will share with you as it has stuck with me throughout the years: I was in speech competitions and got up in front of my Grade 5 class to practice, once I was finished the speech they all threw paper balls at me and booed, it was one of the worst days of my life.
