“Jessica is extremely creative and optimistic, with a unique knack for inspiring people to take action and get excited about what is possible in their lives.” ~ Stephanie Pollack, Intercultural Communications Professor, Singapore University

“I first met Jessica accidentally on purpose and I was immediately struck by her genuine and infectious excitement for the work we do, and her passionate commitment to sharing her story for the benefit of our students. Jessica is authentically and consistently committed to the student experience, and her energy was a welcome addition to our Seneca Leadership Institute. Our students were inspired and moved by her story, and left motivated to tackle their goals. I would recommend her for any opportunity to engage with students exploring their leadership potential.” ~ Lisa Endersby, Manager, Student and Campus Life, Student Services, Seneca College

“Jessica related very well to the audience and captured the attention of each and every child. She explained, in a lot of detail, how things don’t always go as planned and you have to pick yourself up and keep going – and never stop reaching for your goals! Jessica also told them it is okay to be different. As a parent, it made me realize that gymnasts are different. I will have a little more understanding when Elisha is walking down the hall doing a handstand, or doing her back walkovers in the living room. I never really though about how gymnasts feel, we just have a schedule and I follow it without giving much thought to it.  I think Kika the Upside Down Girl will inspire many young gymnasts, teaching them that hard work, determination, and dedication can pay off, you have to keep pushing when the going gets tough and, most of all, it is okay to be different. We felt very inspired listening to Jessica.” ~ Deanna, Gemini Gymnastics Club Parent

“Jessica Tudos’s commitment to education, in the areas of student success and environmental education, is truly significant.  She has a lovely and engaging manner when she speaks with students regarding her transition from budding athlete to Canadian Olympian.  She discusses the highs and lows of competition and most significantly strategies for overcoming challenges and moving forward after experiencing obstacles.  Jessica was tremendous when working one on one with students, taking time to talk with them and to provide times for interaction within the presentation.  I would recommend her as a guest speaker as she provides curriculum linked activities for a variety of subjects and grades while providing an engaging description of her journey and life lessons.” ~ Kim Lang, Student Success Teacher, Sinclair Secondary School

“Jessica Tudos had a very inspirational life story to share with our Leaders in Training Youth Leader Corps. She managed to keep her presentation both personal and informative. We were able to leave her workshop with more knowledge about improving our environmental health, and making wiser choices to benefit our overall athletic health. We were very grateful for having her speak with our group.” ~ Pearl Agustin, Supervisor, Child Youth and Family Programs, YMCA

“Healthy choices and active living are central components to a positive and sustainable world.  With all her energy, Jessica helps everyone understand that small choices can go a long way in building a healthier society.  Jessica energized our group and showed that positive change begins with oneself.” ~ Matt Tonks, Teacher, Our Lady of Guadalupe School

Jessica has a very warm, welcoming and accepting manner. She has excellent skills as an educator, as was able to break down complex topics down into an easy-to-understand presentation which the students could relate to, allowing them to take risks and participate fully in the program.” ~ Suzanne DeValk, Principal, Sunnylea Junior School

“Thank you Jessica for your visit and presentation – it was informative, lively and interactive.” ~ Bassam Naim, Director, The ANB Futbol Academy

“I wasn’t sure what to expect….but after the presentation, I’m asking myself where do I sign up again!  Jessica’s presentation was simplistic in nature, enough that students weren’t overwhelmed and they listened throughout.  Students also had the opportunity to learn about SIMPLE things to make a difference.  Jessica was so creative and flexible with her discussion as to what the students needs and wants were.  I would LOVE to have Jessica return for my classes next year.” ~ Mark Watkins, York Region District School Board
