About The Event
Finding your power to thrive.
How do you find hope when all is lost? How do you find strength when you feel broken? How do you find your voice when you feel worthless and scared?
In Jelena Dokic’s first bestselling book, Unbreakable, the former world No. 4 revealed her incredible survival story; how she overcame adversity, poverty and violence to rise to the top of the tennis world. Jelena’s revelations about her father’s shocking abuse stunned the world.
Fearless is about how you reclaim life when all feels lost. It’s about learning to reach out for help and healing. It’s about speaking up and the power of sharing our stories. In past years Jelena has dealt with disordered eating and reclaimed her body; she has stood up to body shaming and online abuse. She has faced her mental health demons head-on to find stability in the chaos of life. She has endured a devastating relationship breakdown.
This book is about starting at the bottom and building yourself back up. Jelena opens up on how she has survived trauma and heartache to establish herself as a leading tennis commentator and motivational speaker.
The past years have taught her many tough and important lessons, and now she is ready to share them to help you find your voice and the power to thrive.
Our event space is wheelchair accessible via a stair lift. Please contact email@example.com with any additional access requirements and/or questions.
