My name is Con Mitropoulos. For those of you that who don’t know me, I am an extraordinarily brave and generous person whose not afraid to accept that I see the world differently from the masses. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it, so I have chosen to do it by rejecting rejection and embracing resilience. I do this because I don’t know if I am going to get up in the morning, so I have chosen this moment because it could be my last.
I have a huge dream, to change the world and make it a healthier place, one life at a time. My suggestions are radical and will be deemed by many to be over the top, controversial, and insensitive, by pressing many nerves and stepping on too many toes, however this is a dream that needs to be told.obesity
