About UsRaised among the orchards in Kelowna, British Columbia and of Icelandic and French descent, Janyse Jaud decided to be a performer at the age of four. But there was one problem…she was painfully shy.
How did she become an award winner? Every audition, every performance, every successful person she studied, became a lesson that contributed to building courage. Janyse then took these lessons and developed strategies that measurably improved her opportunities and her life. After a life changing experience with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Janyse developed a way to incorporate these strategies to help children.The Magic of Think® was born.
The Magic of Think® series includes inspiring stories, award-winning music, and fun activities, lessons, and games, based on social and emotional learning. Its mission is to change and inspire the world one thought at a time.
The Magic of Think® reminds us how important our thoughts are, how our decisions influence our lives, and how the magic of childhood should never be forgotten.
Janyse went on to become the Narrator of the Emmy award-winning hit series "Adoption Stories" (Discovery Channel) and winner of Best Song at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. The musical style of Janyse ranges from pop to jazz swing and many of her songs have been placed in film and television.
