Well the countdown is on until the official launch of my business MaiLIFE as a Self-empowerment Mental Health Advocacy Speaker. I’m super excited at the thought of having a career doing what I love.. inspiring people, creating hope, helping people and spreading awareness about mental health challenges.
I did Toast Masters at the age of 9 and then started entering speech arts competitions in French and English. Instantly I was hooked! What a rush. And the thought that the whole audience was silent just because they wanted to hear what i had to say! At the age of 9! That’s when I figured out that words were powerful. That was awesome, humbling and empowering.
In high school I heard the term “motivational speaker”. I thought it was a wonderful concept but thought at the time that I had nothing to say. What could I possibly say that would motivate, affect and help people? Well 20 years later it turns out that I have lots of things of value to say, that can help people, increase their awareness and motivate them.
So many people, along the road of my journey of life, have offered to help me in any way they can.. when I was ready. I’ve met some really amazing people along the way and I’m so grateful. It’s really taken a village to get me here.
So look out for me in April/May 2017 for the launch of MaiLIFE. Super excited! The culmination of a life long dream. So many great people that are celebrating with me. Dreams can and do come true. I really believe I’m starting the next chapter of my life and that it will be bigger than I ever could have imagined!
Peace Love & Dreams Actualized.
