An old soul with a big heart, Jonah Berger brings wisdom and youthful energy to every moment of every day. In this episode of CMT 4 Me, Jonah gets personal about his upbringing, family life, the Pickle Witch (yes, the Pickle Witch!), the CMTA's future leaders, and Camp Footprint – camp for kids with CMT.
Explaining the success of Camp Footprint, Jonah points out, "This one-week sleepaway camp for kids with CMT is truly unique. Every camper fits in, feels free to let their guard down, and is given space to be vulnerable, real, and relaxed without the fear of being judged or perceived as different. There is no doubt in my mind – Camp changes lives."
Jonah's spirit and uplifting energy are not only contagious but also motivating. His talent for storytelling and insightful personality will inspire you to move mountains.
