Do you believe that anything is possible? That you can live life to the fullest, here and now, daring greatly?
Therése Neaimé’s answer to these questions has always been a passionate ‘Yes’. Growing up in Sweden as the daughter of a Swedish mother and a Lebanese father, the singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and motivational speaker decided early on to take charge of her own destiny.
Despite being bullied in school, Therése became a successful track and field athlete. “Being an athlete taught me that with hard work and focus you can achieve a lot,” says Therése. “It also improved my confidence and my sense of who I am.” She has applied this mindset to her life ever since.
“I believe life is about becoming the best version of ourselves. Following a path of excellence can be difficult, but not doing it scares me even more.”
That is why Therése never limited herself to being ‘just’ a singer, an actress or a speaker. Whenever she feels called to try something new, she commits to the challenge wholeheartedly. “Obviously, talent is important,” Therése explains, “but work ethic, belief in oneself, and a positive attitude are even better predictors of a person’s success in life.”
”Ask and you might receive! Dare and you will gain!” Therése says. “I truly believe that if you really want to inspire others, you must have been through the journey yourself.”
In her talk, ‘From Dream to Reality’, she tells her personal story. The story of a little girl who thought she couldn’t sing who became a respected artist, making a living doing what she always wanted to do. Therése’s goal is to inspire people, be it through artistic expression or motivational speaking.
The singer-songwriter’s music combines Therése’s Swedish and Lebanese heritage into a Scandipop/Arabic Pop hybrid that has charted worldwide.
She has played concerts in the US, Europe and the Middle East with her own band, Neaimé. She has performed for NATO troops in Afghanistan, and opened up for Simply Red on their European tour. She was selected by the Swedish Government as a notable personality for the cause of Swedish-Arab relationships. Therése has been the Brand Ambassador for Volkswagen Middle East and an Ambassador for the Swedish Foundation for Children with Cancer.
She has performed for the King and Crown Princess of Sweden and at numerous VIP events. As an actress, she has had lead roles in both film and theatre. Therése is also an author who recently published her book, ”From dream to reality”.
Therése also balances her career with being a single mother of three children. Once again, she shows that it is possible to reach your goals no matter how challenging it may seem. “Being a single mom never slowed me down,” says Therése. “I bring my kids along to work-related events whenever possible. I truly believe it´s a great experience for them.”
