Opening our morning session, we are elated to present a truly passionate Woman Leader, one with a focus on the transformation of ourselves through rising above fear, Alicia Seifert.

2014-01-09 20.36.16 Her talk at our very special summit celebrating World Peace Day 2015 will target the affects of FEAR. Alicia’s philosophy dictates that FEAR is one of our world’s root causes to the disruption of peace in our world and that we today must over-come so to live in a world with a ‘Future Peaceful Generation‘. With statistics stating that by 2030 this planet will house up to 9.5 Billion people, the time is NOW to create that positive change.

Alicia will share her experience RISING ABOVE FEAR from the ‘Inside – Out’.

Fear is the number one reason that people do not follow their dreams. In this seminar, Alicia is going to share her own story of overcoming fear to follow her heart’s desires. She will offer tips on how you can get past the barriers that are holding you back to become the person that you were born to be.

With statistics stating that by 2030 this planet will house up to 9.5 Billion people, the time is NOW to create that positive change. This inspired woman started young, as you will read below.

Alicia will address the affects of fear and healing from the ‘Inside – Out’.

Alicia is a soon to be published author and is a founder of a non-profit organization that is aimed at giving youth the tools to success despite their socio-economic disadvantages.

Alicia has started coaching new business owners to help them set up their business efficiently and is a certified Dream Coach with Marcia Weider’s Dream University. She truly believes that entrepreneurship and following your dreams are the way to a successful and love-filled life and believes that we are all better off if everyone is pursuing their heart’s desires.

Alicia Seifert IS The Event Chick!

She started planning events at the tender age of 16 and hasn’t stopped in over 20 years since!

Alicia says: “When I was 16, I planned my first event funded by the money was making as a Library Page. It was a Black History Month event and the money was donated to the Sickle Cell Association of Ontario. I have a niece and nephew with Sickle Cell Anemia and I just wanted to do something to give to the cause in hopes that they could benefit from the research that is being done to help those who suffer from that disease.

What I did not count on, was falling in love!”

Alicia is a certified wedding planner with the WPIC and produces women’s wellness events. As a ‘geek at heart’ she also produces events for her fellow nerds who love comic books, video games, sci-fi and technology.

As a person who is passionate about the community and the importance of being involved in projects that somehow improve the lives of others, I have been pleased to have been involved with several charitable organizations that have allowed me the opportunity to share my love for planning while supporting noble causes.

Amira Ayad, PhD will share her Message of Healing and Peace.

My name is Amira, I was trained as a pharmacist.

I used to teach at the faculty of pharmacy and had my Master degree in Pharmaceutics…

amiraYears back, I was following a predetermined path, studying and preparing my master in pharmacy and working my way up the ladder of academia. But, other plans were meant for me. I had to take a leave after my second child was born. I had just finished my dissertation proposal and was ready to submit it. But, the faculty advisor refused. I had to return back to work for me to get my degree, something I couldn’t do with two young children at hand.

My only way out was to submit my resignation to be able to finish my master. I felt so frustrated. I cried and cried for days and weeks. I felt oppressed and forced into a decision that changed my whole life plans… my life dreams… But… Wait a minute… Were they really “MY” dreams? This tragic experience forced me to stop and reconsider my path… my life… my passions and my goals. Now that I am not tied to any academic career any longer, what do I really want to do?

As a pharmacist I knew how medication can relieve symptoms in no time, but I also knew how this can fool us into believing we’re healed… I experienced first hand how masking pain, depletion, and stresses with quick fixes can push our depression, anxiety and chronic illnesses deeper into our body turning acute transient discomfort into chronic pain and turning body whispers into screams. I witnessed Diseases and syndromes that we rarely heard of before becoming so common… I saw how we became experts at labelling our conditions, yet we failed miserably at healing them… We became caught in a vicious cycle, one disease leading to another… one medication leading to another… and we ended up on a cocktail of medications that drain our energy and our life saving.

My faculty experience taught me the meaning of TRUST… Trust my Creator, trust His Ultimate Plans and Wisdoms, trust life and its unexpected forks on the road, and trust myself and my choices. It taught me the importance of listening to my inner voice, to my deep heart whispers…

I followed my passion for natural life and living and decided to shift gears… I pursued my PhD in natural health, a path that I wouldn’t have considered if I was still among the faculty staff.

Book_03“…. Soon enough I wrote my thesis on the effect of spirituality on health… A radical right brain shift for a left brained scientist like myself. I then started my career in the natural health sector with a practice that combines the best of both worlds: Science with spirituality and functional nutrition with mind/body healing.

I became a Board Certified Holistic Health practitioner and Registered orthomolecular health consultant. I published 4 books: Healing Body & Soul, in 2008; The True Secret, in 2011, Body Whispers & Body Whispers Journal in 2015. I am now a faculty member at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto and practice private holistic nutrition consultation at Alexandria Medical Clinic in Mississauga with focus on Chronic disease, Anxiety and autoimmune illnesses.”

Youth for a Future Peaceful Generation, Lois White

YHR Toronto logo 2Our purpose at Youth for Human Rights Toronto is to educate youth and make human rights real to everyday people in everyday life. The human rights platform is based on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights signed in 1948 with 193 countries who are signatories to it. There are 30 basic human rights listed under the Declaration and we continue to educate youth about these so that they can become advocates for these rights and apply them to the world around them, whether business, community, or the playground.

We are taking responsibility for human rights in our city of Toronto.

We are passionate about helping young entrepreneurs understand how human rights plays an important part in what they do. Helping them integrate human rights into their lifestyle and business practices.
Through various community activities and working with like-minded individuals and groups, we contribute to our purposes in teaching youth about human rights and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace.

Toronto is a multicultural community so it is imperative that we have our promotional materials in various languages as the need for translations has escalated.

Education – First School Club: Youth for Human Rights Clubs are starting in various educational institutions. Their mission is to outreach to as many students as possible, to solve human rights problems that matter to them and to be a club that actually makes a difference.

July 14 2015 Daphne Nicole Mary Cory Abeir LoisOur youth volunteers are educating the public through events and assisting YHR Toronto in spreading the word.

Lois White July 2015The youth have a powerful voice and can help tremendously in improving the world in which we live.

Youth are not being taught their basic human rights and this website contains educational materials including free education kits for educators, videos, public service announcements, posters, booklets, virtual classroom online learning and much more to increase human rights education, more specifically the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

My passion is to help youth and empower them to be the best they can be and be the change.

Their creative ideas and determination are an inspiration to other youth.
