Hi! I'm Karina LeBlanc. I'm a retired Olympic bronze medalist and professional athlete who has the distinguished honour of being the longest serving soccer player for Canada.
I played soccer professionally for almost 18 years at the international level, and I participated in 5 World Cups, and 2 Olympic Games. Winning an Olympic medal was special to me, but personally one of greatest accomplishments was being named a UNICEF ambassador and understanding soccer was a platform to my purpose on this earth. I recently travelled to the small island of Dominica to give back to the island I lived on for the 1st 8 years of my life, and saw the power of sport in a country that has been through so much recently. These experiences paired with the recent honouring in my community in Canada with the naming of the Karina LeBlanc Sports Field have shown me is it not just what you do, but who you are in doing things that most stands out in the end.
Today, my career path takes me around the globe where I participate in global leadership initiatives and deliver motivational keynote addresses, speaking to diverse audiences. Through sharing my personal story to inspire others, I emphasize the importance of self belief and dreaming big, in order to OWN the best version of yourself.
My International keynotes have put me in front of intimate audiences, including influential leaders, politicians, business executives and CEOs as well as children. I have spoken at the United Nations General Assembly events on two occasions as a UNICEF ambassador, and have engaged large audiences at major events, such as Canada's 150th Celebration and WE Day. I've also hosted TedX Vancouver and was a reporter with CBC for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
I have a presence on-air, on both television and radio, where I give voice to a variety of different topics from philanthropy to sports. I firmly believe that we all have a purpose here on earth, and the greatest joys and challenges are faced on our journey to discovering it. I love to ask myself and my audiences challenging questions such as,
"What is your WHY?" And "Why are you here on this earth?"
I advocate that when you do know your purpose, you are able to live the best version of yourself, every day, regardless of circumstance. My passion for purposeful living and inspiring the next generation has led me to becoming a UNICEF ambassador, TECK ambassador, CONCACAF ambassador, and FIFA Legend and ambassador.
Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Tuesday, March 27th at 7pm ET.
