Hi, I’m Natalie, and I’m from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada but currently live in a small village called Kyobugombe near Kabale in Southwestern Uganda. I am on a path to becoming an Empowerment and Transformative Life Coach after overcoming burnout and a mid-life crisis as a creative individual.
My last 5 years have been a rollercoaster ride, but an incredible community of loved ones has supported me in overcoming my challenges. I've regained my balance, and I'm now putting immense effort into rediscovering my passion and embracing my future. My goal is to contribute meaningfully to society and repay the generosity I've received.
After dedicating considerable effort, I am setting off on a quest to become an accredited Empowerment and Transformative Life Coach recognized by the esteemed International Coaching Federation (ICF), the world’s foremost organization for coaches and coaching. The path to ICF certification is both challenging and rewarding, but it comes with substantial expenses.
Despite being able to cover basic living expenses and help those in my community here in Uganda, I face difficulties in generating additional funding. In my music and graphic/web design professions, the landscape has changed, and income generation has become more challenging because of the rise of AI and automation. Limited work opportunities have made it difficult for me to save for this venture.
The credentialing process comprises three stages that amount to $20,000 CAD. My goal is to secure these funds by December 15th, 2023, as that is the deadline for enrolment. Your support will not only give life to my career transition but also be a profound demonstration of trust in my ability to assist others in transforming their lives.
I'm looking to both prepare for my future career and provide guidance to people during critical moments in their lives. I’m seeking your support to help me carve out a fresh path in a world where AI is replacing jobs in music production, website design, and graphic arts—industries I specialize in. This support will allow me to pursue my passion for inspiring people, which I used to do with my music, and also mentor individuals during life transitions. My certifications in Purpose Coaching, Dream Building Coaching, and Business & Personal Power Coaching will enable me to coach and guide others worldwide and aid entrepreneurs in Kabale, Uganda, in bettering their living conditions and standards.
Donations can be made via this GoFundMe campaign.
No amount is too small, and shares of my campaign would be so helpful. . I am incredibly grateful for any support you can offer, whether it be through a donation or by spreading the word to your friends, family, and community.
To Recap, the funds collected by this fundraiser will be allocated to the following:
• Life Coaching Courses, education materials & ICF Certification Costs
• GoFundMe associated fees
• Taxes on donations received which have to be reported as income
The goal is 20,000 CAD to be raised by December 15th 2023
