This week on See It To Be It, we talk to Hannah Rad, an On-Air Talent, Radio Host, DJ and Mental Health advocate.
Hannah shares her story of growing up in a small town outside of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and always wanted to be on the radio.
She decided from a very young age that she needed to move New York in order to fulfill her dreams of becoming a DJ and TV Host. She studied at a college in New York and after graduating, she got a job in design and started campaigning her portfolio to become an on-air talent.
Puff Daddy discovered her about five years ago and asked if she would be interested in doing some TV work. She became one of the original hosts on his network and eventually was able to executive produce her own show for five seasons.
After spending 15 years in New York, Hannah decided it was time for a change.
She moved to LA and discovered that even though she had tons of experience, she would have to break into the industry again in her new city.
Hannah admits she was a bit overconfident and didn't realize how hard it would be to reintegrate into her career and gain new connections.
She started to experience a lot of depression and anxiety from in-between gigs and trying to find her next big thing.
Hannah had an epiphany and thought she could actually create something beautiful out of all her heavy feelings.
She created a mini series called, "Sorry to Keep You Waiting," which focuses on her mental health journey as she drives around to seven different locations in California. Each of the locations matches the struggle she faced and how she conquered it.
She hopes that this series will make people aware about how important mental health is and explore the many different ways that have helped her in her own journey.

Hannah on manifesting her own dream job:
— "And by the grace of God and a lot of hard work, blood, sweat and tears, I ended up on the radio in New York about ten or eleven years ago. Which is finally when I got my big break. So it happened. I manifested it from a very young age."
