The art of resilience
Finding the butterfly within
At age 30, Mariam Issa moved to Melbourne, Australia, from her Somali homeland with her husband, four children and a fifth on the way.
Far away from the tight communities and families in Somalia, Mariam found herself in a foreign country that had a foreign language and a foreign culture.
For a decade she navigated depression, the victim phase, an anger phase, and finally, arriving at the activist phase. Through her powerful stories that tell her trials and tribulations, she has inspired countless women who have had similar experiences to stop seeing themselves as victims, but to see the butterfly within in order to achieve their fullest potential.
Mariam is the author of, “A Resilient Life,” co-founder of RAW (Resilient Aspiring Women),sits on the board of Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, serves as an ambassador for Refugee Council of Australia and a Director at Family Peace.
She is an International Women’s Forum member and co-founder of Space2b, an art and design-based social enterprise and was awarded the Ambassador of Peace award from the Universal Peace Federation.
Bring Mariam to you as a keynote speaker or as part of one of our ‘Thriving in 2019’ panels.

Making space to thrive
CERTIFIED LIFE COACH, WORKSHOP FACILITATOR
In her late thirties, Mel felt a little bit like life as as knew it was over. She had spent most of the decade deep in the role of motherhood with 3 young children, and while there is no doubting they were her proudest achievement and greatest joy, she often felt she had lost the true essence of who she was. She put her wants and desires at the bottom of the pile.
She reinvented herself and now dedicates herself to empowering others to do the same.
Melissa is a certified life coach with the Beautiful You Coaching Academy, and have spent much of her life on a quest for knowledge (she holds Bachelor of Economics and Graduate & Post Graduate Degrees in Psychology).
Based in Bayside Melbourne, she spends her days coaching wonderful women (both in person and via Skype) and runs the Bayside Womens circles, various workshops and retreats for women and tween/teen girls.
Bring Mel to you as a keynote speaker or as part of one of our ‘Thriving in 2019’ panels.
