“Even with the strongest wind against you, the sun can still shine”


Above quote is the motto of Evelien Jonkers. Some people would say that recovering from severe illness or injury is like performing on the level of a professional athlete. In this case Evelien is an all-round athlete. Despite brain damage when she was 28 and breast cancer when she was 30, she continuously keeps thinking in possibilities, stays positive and shows persistency and commitment. Due to her setbacks in life and in the mean while still living life to the fullest, she is an inspiration for many people. Evelien loves to surprise you, to create a change and to add value to herself and to the world around her.

Evelien is an expert in energy management: how to get the most out of your life, without asking too much of yourself and without feeling completely drained at the end of your day. During her TED talk she will build a bridge between you, a pack of yoghurt and how to prevent a burn out or how to recover from illness or injury in the best possible way.
