Azeline Willaims - CEO and Co-Founder Kidzucate, Author

In addition to being a wife and mother, Azelene Williams (Dip. Holistic Counselling, Dip. Community Services Work, Cert. Domestic and Family Violence, Cert. Sexual Intelligence) is currently furthering her studies with a Bachelor of Social Work through ECU.

Azelene is a confident, intensely motivated as well as an experienced businesswoman and social activist. As a qualified holistic counsellor, published author, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Kidzucate, Azelene pursues her passion for social justice and women’s issues.

Originally from South Africa, Azelene has also lived in the Middle East before settling in Perth, Western Australia in 2011. Her passion to empower women all over the world was inspired by her own personal traumatic experiences which are documented in her two books INFERTILITY Road to Hell and Back (ISBN-978-0-646- 57555-1) and BROKEN Breaking the Silence (ISBN -978-0-646-94545-3).

Azelene personally experienced three and a half years of physical and emotional abuse as a teenager in her first relationship. She came out a stronger person and now teaches youth and adults about unhealthy relationships, how to identify them and how to safely break free from them. Her life's ambition as an activist in the field of domestic and family violence is to have a positive impact both on today’s and future generations.
