Orlena Cain is a woman who can’t sit still. On top of her full-time job as a morning radio show host in Belleville, Ontario, Orlena is a budding stand-up comic, an author, and an entrepreneur. She’s been involved in modelling and voice over work. She’s had acting roles in commercials, worked on ET Canada and was a host on the Shopping Channel. But life was far from rosy growing up just outside of Belleville, where Orlena says she faced daily abuse; mental, physical and sexual. On this episode of Run It Like a Girl, Orlena Cain walks us through her incredible story of perseverance, determination and sacrifice, and her journey back from the depths of despair. She talks about the importance of mentorship and giving back, and has some strong words of advice for young women who are struggling.
