Janine originates from the heart of Australia. She began training to be an elite ski racer for the Olympics at a very young age. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Janine’s training was cut short by a tragic accident.
Janine was struck by a speeding utility vehicle during a bike ride which caused her to suffer multiple life-threatening injuries. After major spinal surgery, and spending five months immobilized in a hospital bed, Janine returned home to heal.
But what would her new life entail? The dream of being an Olympic-winning elite ski racer may have been shattered, but a new dream was emerging. One day, she witnessed a plane flying above her and thought “If I can’t walk, I might as well fly.”
In this Facebook Live Interview, Host Ariel Villapiano sits down with Janine to discuss her struggles and share some moving advice on overcoming fear. As a keynote speaker, Janine incorporates her powerful message of overcoming adversity into her presentations. She shares the lessons she’s learned throughout her journey that continue to fuel her mind and spirit.
