Fil-Aussie Passion Coach and Intuitive Guide, Joergette Mae Medel will speak at the Women's League online summit to be hosted by the World Leader Summit [WLS] during 8-10 March 2021 to celebrate International Women's Day.

Joergette whose professional tag is The Soul Igniter, will be speaking  on "Using Crisis As Your Catalyst - Transform Your Pain into Passion, Power & Purpose".

"This topic is very dear to my heart and I will share stories of my own journey from heartbreak to being the heroine of my own life.

"Being a mum of 4 beautiful children, my journey hasn’t been easy. I have experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows throughout this rollercoaster ride of life. I have hit rock bottom on multiple occasions, and I have experienced multiple Deaths and Rebirths in this lifetime. And just as the phoenix rises from the ashes, I too have clawed my way through the dark, risen through the many challenges and obstacles I have faced and have been reborn multiple times over.

"Whilst my life is far from being picture perfect, I get to enjoy my life with my amazing partner who supports me unconditionally, who sees me and loves me for who I truly am; I get to be a mum to my gorgeous kids; I get to be and do ME without compromising on my values. Together as a family, we are striving towards consciously creating our dream life.

What does this speaking engagement mean to Joergette?

This is not the first time that 39 year old Joergette will be speaking in a world gathering aimed at empowering women.   She spoke at the Leading with Heart Global Women's Summit in Makati, Philippines on 1-2 February 2020, which had the good fortune of being held before the pandemic gripped the world.

However, having seen what people had endured in 2020, she looks at this engagement for the International Women's Day as something special.

"I have a fundamental belief that everything happens in perfect Divine timing and always for a purpose.

"This speaking engagement represents a milestone in my career and my life. It shows me that not only is it now MY time to be seen and be heard; it's also the perfect time for more women (and men) to hear the message I'm here to share.

"Things happen quickly when you're living in alignment with your purpose. It's when I'm presented with synchronistic opportunities like these that I know I'm walking my path and living my purpose.

Her involvement in the Filipino-Australian community commenced with an interview by Radio Tagumpay and subsequently co-anchoring with Crystel Bandal the Independence Day gala celebration by the Alliance of Australian Philippine Organisations (APCO) in June 2019.  Sadly with the restrictions caused by COVID 19 during 2020, many events had been cancelled which had stalled further involvement in the community.  


The Australian Filipina looks at 2021 with optimism and hopes to feature more community events involving more Fil-Aussies.
