The Moment HQ talks to Tania de Jong about her Life Changing Moment: Overcoming Rejection to Believe in Herself Again.

The rejection and feelings of inadequacy in Tania’s life all started with the words, “Tania I don’t think you should bother having singing lessons you’re not good enough”, which came from her friend at age 14. A similar incident then happened at age 23, while she was studying singing professionally in London.

Tania could’ve easily lived the rest of her life (like many do) consumed by fear, feelings of worthlessness and a mindset of “I’m not good enough.” And while those things did play out for her, she found it within herself to overcome these and pursue singing, the very thing that today has made her successful in her own right.

Ashley and Mike are a husband and wife duo and they run the website Gather and Feast. Their website was created to share with you wholesome and nutritious recipes, using natural ingredients and fresh in-season produce like smoky fish tacos, vanilla buckwheat waffles, smoky chilli spaghetti and spelt chocolate fondant cakes.

I have to say another interview that makes the pick of my favourite interviews. Ash, Mike and I had such a blast with this conversation and it was so lovely to connect with people who truly have a deep love for what they do and have the biggest intention to touch other’s lives.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing John Noble, Australian Theatre, Film & Television Actor for the past 13 years, and while we both lived in New York I got to spend quite a bit of time with his family, who his kids I’m very close with. I used to take some of his acting classes when I was a teenager, which were a lot of fun and which is exactly his précis for the craft - “Just have fun, just have fun. Without that it’s just a dilemma.”

I admire John’s incredible ability to take the love he has for his craft and channel it through the various characters he plays; he’s truly remarkable to watch.

John has starred as Denethor in Lord of the Rings, where his career unexpectedly shot to international success. He later then starred as Dr. Walter Bishop in the science fiction TV series, Fringe. I remember watching these with his kids, Daniel, Sam and Jess in New York - as we all marvelled at his brilliant characterisation, while eating take out. More recently John has played in Sleepy Hollow and Elementary as Sherlock Holme’s father.

Tanya Streeter is is a British-Caymanian-American world champion freediver who holds the Woman’s World Record for No Limits Apnea for a 160m dive (on one breathe, with no breathing aparatus).

This interview makes it into my personal collection of favourite interviews I’ve ever done. It’s a beautiful insight into our selves, our immense power and our capacity to go beyond the limitations of the mind.

My path crossed with Tanya’s due to my dad’s recent work in directing the latest documentary film: Momentum Freediving, which Tanya is a part of. A film bringing together 16 of the world’s elite freedivers for the first time ever. This is a film that has the power to truly bring the beauty and magic of freediving to the world and makes you question your boundaries.
