Melissa Mukaiwa – Business and Entrepreneurship, Rutgers University in New Jersey

Melissa Mukaiwa is a Mindfulness, Meditation, Yoga, Relaxation & Elemental Reiki Master Teacher.  She is also a Transformational Life Coach, Host as well as an International Speaker & Speaker Trainer.  She holds an honours degree in Business Science from the University of Cape Town, and  began her work as an educator in 2013.

Since then her coaching and mentorship footprint has spread to eight countries, where she has trained hundreds both in-person and online.  Melissa’s passion for wellness and personal empowerment took root in the founding of a local community development initiative “Just Breathe.”

She is also the Founder and CEO of PR, marketing, and creative solutions company Nica Creative.  Melissa describes herself as a point-of-first-contact, irreverent optimist, and student-teacher to the core who has founded companies, projects, and movements all geared toward one singular goal: “The Activation of Human Potential to the Betterment of Us All.”

Melissa’s mission is to experientially dispel the outdated and inaccurate notion that there exists a trade-off between superior performance and one’s personal well-being.  Her goal is to equip every school, workplace, and Namibian household with the tools, structures, and support needed to get “People on Purpose” and truly “Make Wellness a Way of Life.”
