29. Ariane de Melo – Finding Yourself & Embracing Your Story

Ariane de Melo is known as the Branding Director. She is a theatre actress, an award-winning author, and theatre director. As an expert storyteller, Ariane is also an official coach for TedX speakers, which she focuses on the fundamentals of public speaking.

In this episode, Ariane takes us through her story of adversity. At the vulnerable age of 19, she spontaneously moved from her home country Brazil to Germany. She quickly took note of many cultural differences including a harsh language barrier. While adjusting to the new culture, Ariane also found herself trapped in an abusive relationship in which she endured emotional and financial abuse, leading her into $12,000 worth of debts. 

Despite her adversities in the beginning, Ariane has a deep appreciation for cultural diversity and the benefits of traveling to learn about other cultures. She truly believes that resilience is the only way to stay true to yourself during the hard times.
