Jean Blanchard Azip
Father, singer/songwriter, motivational speaker and workshop leader.
I was born in war torn Democratic Republic of Congo in the 1980’s. I was an average African boy. I played! I learnt! I grow! After heartbreakingly losing my beloved family in a series of tragic events, I made the epic and eventful voyage to the UK. A lone-child seeking asylum and safety I began to rebuild my life.
The revelation that I had been spared from the jaws of death brought both joy and sadness to my young heart. At the tender age of _______, I realised I had been given a second chance at life. This emotional journey became my motivation to help others overcome their difficulties and find their dreams and passions. Seeking a world class education here in England I became an accountant. I followed by musical vision and became a successful music artist (See the music section for more information).
My desire is to engage the disengaged and to inspire the unmotivated. I do this by giving back to the community that has given me sanctuary. Within my workshops I use my artistic abilities and life story to develop strategies to support people with their emotional and mental well-being. Emotional intelligence starts with a single spark of inspiration.
“I’m giving back to the community for allowing me to rebuild my life here in the UK.”
