Jess is professional, reliable, and charismatic

Jess Van Zeil is an inspiring young speaker who we were lucky to have as a panel member at the Victorian Government’s inaugural Youth Summit, to discuss the theme of ‘effecting change’. Jess is professional, reliable, and charismatic; her powerful message of overcoming adversity resonated with the audience of over 400 young people and youth sector professionals alike.
Jess has an amazing ability to connect with many people at the same time enabling them to reflect on their own strengths and embark on a journey of transformation. Jess inspired resilience, positivity, and humility through her participation, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you, Jess, for sharing your story and contributing to the success of our event.
