If you are seeking a speaker, presenter for your event, workshop or forum please consider booking J’Que. When asked about overcoming obstacles in life, here’s what she shared with us.
“Life. Is. Challenging. This an unavoidable consequence of simply being alive. Success therefore, is not determined by our ability to elude life’s difficulties, but rather to embrace and respond positively to each new challenge. Fortitude is the virtue which enables us to strive and push forward in the face of these difficulties. My struggle with cancer taught me about fortitude. As a fitness professional, I grew accustomed to being full of vitality, energy, and strength. I quickly learned that real vitality was being able to fight for my continued existence every day. Energy is being able to perform simple tasks, tasks I would normally take for granted, while perpetually being at the brink of exhaustion. Strength is being incredibly weak, completely vulnerable, and still daring to live.” – JQue 2017
