Ontario Housing Complex Janét grew up the first 9 years of her life

Dear Visitor:

I’m Janét Aizenstros —a child of Caribbean immigrants. My parents came to Canada in the early to late seventies. They did not have much but they always ensured all our needs were met.  

My first 9 years of my life I grew up in an Ontario Housing Project in Guelph, Ontario.  I was surrounded by kids who came from all cultures and walks of life. Rich, poor, whole and broken. Regardless of my circumstances, my parents example showed me that if I believed in myself and worked hard, I could be anything I wanted to be.

When you can see better, you can conceive better. You can perceive better, knowing you can be better... by showing the world you can do better.
— Janét Aizenstros

Although, my journey may have been tumultuous, I wouldn't change my past.

In 2016, the Janét Aizenstros Foundation was launched to give back to my home community of Guelph and select global initiatives who have embraced my movement.

I feel I am the luckiest child in the world to have grown up in a city that has given life to all my artistic gifts and continues to give back to me daily.  Truly, I am blessed to be given the gift of bearing witness to living my life on purpose everyday. 

Throughout my journey,  I have learned a key lesson that  "living is giving and giving is living."  I strongly believe we are all here to serve our communities with our God-given abilities. It reminds me of the quote, "to whom much is given, much is expected."  

And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because those who come to him must believe he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
— Paul the Apostle, Hebrews 11:6

At times, I am emotional when I reminisce that it was only a few years ago, I was afraid, alone, feeling abandoned by God, family and friends, while living out of a suitcase with my two small children. I understand what it means to have everything, lose everything and have everything again. 

The Janét Aizenstros Foundation's primary goal is to connect with people who are struggling to have the faith to imagine beyond their circumstances.

We believe anyone can create a life worth living in the most miraculous way.

I'm here to tell you that dreams really do come true to those who believe they can live life on purpose.
