Me – Gaynor Young

Would you like to advertise in my blog?

Laugh – of course you do!

I am an ex-actress, Inspirational Speaker, writer and a blogger. My award winning blog is extremely popular with thousands of views per week. Because of my accident, I have a high public profile and have appeared on a number of TV shows including “Hello Doctor” and “Carte Blanche”. I have also featured in and written for numerous magazine including “Fairlady”, “YOU” and “Readers Digest”. I have spoken inspirationally worldwide – Washington, London and throughout South Africa for high profile organisations and blue chip companies. My first book ‘My Plunge to Fame’ was published to widespread popular acclaim.

What people have recently said about me:

….With her courage most modestly on offer, she tells us her story. With a light touch and a warm heart. She is a real charmer. To those with a similar fight on their hands, she is inspiring. And to those of us who have been luckier, we simply marvel at a triumphant human spirit. Get to know Gaynor – you’ll fall in love!

Dame Janet Suzman – International Actress and Director

 ….One of the mantras I try to remember when times are tough is “It’s not what happens to you – it’s what you do about it.” I cannot think of a better example of someone who epitomises that spirit than Gaynor Young. With the same electrifying talent she showed on stage, Gaynor inspires audiences with her life story whether writing or speaking.

Derek Watts – Host of Carte Blanche

 ….Gaynor Young is a life affirming gift to us all. Her courage , her humour  and  her ability to rise above all the challenges that life has thrown across her path with such grace, is a joy to behold.

  Mannie Manim – Director & CEO The Baxter Theatre

….Gaynor Young has an amazing and inspiring story to tell. What is more she is a brilliant and witty raconteur when she tells it, whether in a motivational talk, or in her solo show “My Plunge to Fame”. She is a riveting writer too!

Des and Dawn Lindberg – Musicians & Entertainers

 ….I have known Gaynor Young since she was a first-year student at the then University of Natal and have watched her grow both as a person and an actress. I have always been impressed by her enthusiasm for her craft and while this was dulled for a while through her tragic accident, the flame of her talent is back and burning as brightly as ever. Few individuals in this world are blessed with her sheer determination and guts. She is the living embodiment of survival.
