Meet Lea Tran 

Everyone has a story, a voice. My voice resonates through how “I Did Not Miss the Boat”, the refugee boat that granted me the physical freedom. But it was up to me to heal that broken spirit.

I came from a war-torn country, a family in turmoil. Whatever did not kill me, definitely DID NOT make me stronger, not for the longest time. But I did overcome fear by embracing change and by taking small courageous actions. Getting out of my comfort zone has helped me successfully turn my life around.

Taking a leaf from my life stories and experiences, I want to share with you the keys of self-discovery to help empower yourself to cope with change and to find the happiness you deserve. Together, we will uncover the infinite potential locked deep within us to live a purposeful, meaningful life. "Don't miss YOUR boat of having an abundant life, embrace change!"


As a speaker, Lea will inspire, transform, empower her audience NOT to miss their boat of opportunity to embrace changes, to re-invent themselves in order to fulfill the purpose of their life’s journey.
