    List of Filipino Motivational Speakers Philippines Janina Simion, PPMC, CPS®, PSF®, PhD Div (hc)
    She started her international trajectory in 1994 as one of only seven Romanian recipients of a George Soros Academic Achievement Scholarship as a student at the American University in Bulgaria. She graduated in 1998 with a BA in Business Administration and additional degrees in Journalism/Mass Communications and Music Performance. With 25 years of experience across Europe and Asia in finance, publishing, education, management consulting, and brand strategy, Janina excels at delivering solutions both big and small— for several local startups and for one of the largest FMCG companies in the Philippines (where she led a holistic change management program, and the structuring of a massive CSR program from the ground up). As a Change Management Consultant and Corporate Communications/PR Strategist, she brings inspiration, synergy, and flow to every scenario. In October 2000, Janina was one of the first five women ever ordained in the Pentecostal Church in Romania. In 2019, she renewed her ordination as an inter-faith minister with the Universal Life Church and holds a PhD (h.c.) in Divinity. She has gained many insights into our relationship with the Sacred, our role in the universe, and our spiritual journey through life. In 2014 and 2015, Janina was awarded the Rotary International Presidential Awards for her contributions to Rotary China and the Rotary Club of Chengdu (Sichuan, China), where she served on the Board as PR Director. She was trusted as the editor of two textbooks (Old Testament 101 and New Testament 101) in use by theological seminaries across Romania, and she has also co-authored and edited two more books (To Love an Angel and The JEDI Code) published in 2011 and 2015 in Bucharest. As a classical-crossover mezzo-soprano, Janina has performed in Europe and Asia since 1995, including the House of Parliament in Bucharest, the Tvaerkulturelt Center in Copenhagen, and the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing. Her style stems from centuries-old Orthodox Church chanting, and her repertoire includes sacred music, opera, Broadway, jazz standards, contemporary music, and meditation music. She believes that music is the secret language of the heart, where words, harmony, and silence come together to take you on a journey of healing and personal transformation. When intention, emotion, and harmonics are combined into song, music becomes a living field of energy where you can discover the inner truths of your heart and connect with others on a deep, spiritual level. She is just as comfortable communicating to an audience of one or to a sea of thousands, but her stage experience includes more than music—Janina is also an actress. She has appeared in several theater productions, TV series, and movies. You might have seen her in Magpakailanman, Wish Ko Lang, Owe My Love, Abot-kamay na Pangarap, Unbreak My Heart, and the upcoming Gomburza and Shake, Rattle, and Roll: Glitch. Despite her professional and artistic achievements, her journey through life wasn’t easy. Janina is a survivor of domestic abuse and a first-hand witness to mental and emotional trauma’s impact on our physical health. In April last year, she was diagnosed with late-stage III cancer and told she only had 2-3 months to live. Since then, she has beat the odds and made a full recovery, thanks to the talented and dedicated medical professionals in the Philippines, the country she now calls home. Her own process of healing from the trauma of narcissistic abuse has led her to discover her soul mission: to help others rebuild their sense of self-worth, regain their confidence, and learn to live a happy and fulfilled life. Her experience overcoming terminal cancer has equipped her with a unique perspective and insight into maintaining our emotional and mental balance in the face of adversity and into our untapped ability to turn even the most dire circumstances in our favor. She remains grounded, balancing profound empathy, mindfulness, gratitude, and non-attachment. She has lost everything and had to rebuild her life from the ground up – and she has had to do it all on her own while living in a foreign country. This deep, transforming personal journey led her to become a healer of human suffering: Janina is now certified as a Master Life Coach, Authentic Happiness Life Coach, and Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki practitioner. Her story of resilience, courage, and hope guided her first to become a Certified Public Speaker and then a Certified Public Speaking Fellow. Her Signature Story is the story of her life. She is here to bear witness to the fact that we can overcome, no matter what. That we can overcome the fear, the adversity, the hardship, the trauma, and the pain. She is still here because she follows her life purpose: to heal and to inspire. Janina is an energy Alchemist on a mission to transmute pain and suffering into balance and joy.
