Susana Tuya Sarmiento is an International Inspirational Celebrity Speaker, TV Presenter, Journalist, Producer and No1 Best Selling Author and highly sought after the media throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Susana has a very clear life mission and that is to transform a million lives by 2020!
Susana is a truly passionate and high energy Latina who now lives between New Zealand and Australia and embodies and lives her life’s work.
She was born into the fashion industry in Lima, Peru, where she started designing her own range of kids’ shoes & accessories from the age of 10 and got her first tastes of fashion and ‘business’. She thereafter migrated to New Zealand in her late teens developing an expansive knowledge in the marketing field, including at age 21 owning businesses such as a speaker’s bureau and personal development courses. This voyage led her to start searching for a deeper meaning igniting a new passion which took her right back to her first joys and taste of entrepreneurship.
Susana has overcome her share of personal challenges. Dyslexia as her first challenge made traditional learning at school a trial, but with the help of a tape recorder to play back lessons, and plenty of brain sweat, she managed to overcome it. Her family left an unstable Peru in the 1980s and New Zealand in 1989 was a culture shock for the colourful city girl. Susana quit school at 15 left home to make her fortune and hasn’t looked back since.
Not afraid of hard work, 15-year old Susana sold encyclopedias door-to-door for six months, then switched to real estate and excelled as the youngest Rookie of The Year with Harcourts New Zealand. Later she bought a corporate coaching business before eventually finding her niche as marketing whiz for a property investment firm. Only it wasn't quite her niche, yet. Her light-bulb moment was during a trip to San Francisco when she overheard a stylist talking to a client in a restaurant. Susana came home and set up styling, personal corporate branding business in 2005, quickly becoming the country's go to style, self-image and confidence guru counselor.
Susana Tuya Sarmiento's career took a complete 360-degree turn and her success journey came to total halt when in 2012 she became unexpectedly chronically ill with an autoimmune condition ;CFS Chronic & Adrenal Fatigue and ME Myalgia Encephalitis and was bedridden, unable to move on and off for over 3 years. However she powerfully shares “I had no choice. With nowhere to go besides go inward and really take a serious look at my life, I realised that the biggest lessons are all learned within a crisis and they can be our catalyst to true change. It is all on how we respond and what we do with these moments that continues to define us and redefine us to our magnificence. My 'A2L6' period which was the name and number of my fire sprinkler and all I could read at that time was my most transformational period of my life. To this day I call it my body and life upgrade”.
When you read Susana’s words, watch her present and when in her presence you cannot help to be magnetised by her energy to empower others to their greatness.
