Speaker Jurne Azubiah

Jurne Azubiah is a qualified diet and nutrition advisor who is passionate about offering the drugless art of healing to her clients as well as providing them with the relevant information about how to apply her healing modalities.

Jurne Azubiah makes it her priority to provide practical tools to help you stay well, feel whole and look great! She clarifies the myths and misconceptions about health, nutrition, food, pharmaceutical drugs and sickness.

Her nutritonal approach is holistic, natural, spiritual and a simple way to reclaim back your health and stay well.

Jurne Azubiah emphasisis that vibrant health is possible. Supreme health is your birthright. She believes everyone who intends to make the ultimate change can achieve their maximum potential of wellness by understanding the basic principles of diet and nutrition.
When diet is used for treatment medical drugs are not needed. Her teachings are based on the natural laws of life, prevention and care. Jurne Azubiahencourages wellness and awareness beyond a universal stage where sickness is absent.


I am very passionate about diet & nutrition. I have been passionate about health from as young as 15 years of age. After being diagnosed with having cancerous cells in my cervix, I decided to embark on a journey of self healing. I removed all cooked food and transitioned to a raw food diet, which included daily doses of high dense nutrients. Within 8 months of being on my new diet and implementing nutritional protocols, my cells started to repair themselves. When I went back for my results there were no more cancerous cells to be found.

I soon became increasingly aware how we can heal and restore supreme health through diet and nutrition. I was inspired to become a diet and nutrition advisor in order to share knowledge and help others to reclaim back their health. I am devoted to re-educating people about the importance of taking care of their health.

My aim is not to convince you but to inform you. I aspire to empower you with enough knowledge so you are confident enough to take full responsibility for your own well being. My preventative health care approach has been proven to work for those who apply my protocols. I offer home and phone consultations following a strictly confidential approach.

Workshop Information

Black Wombman Empowered Health workshop is a well needed space created for like minded sisters to gather together for honest, open dialogue about challenges to health, spirituality, diet and healing that black wombmen face. The space created is for us to share our stories, energies and heal together.

Within this space we will impart knowledge about diet, nutrition, health, spirituality & emotional healing. We will support you to uncover your innate power tools and gifts to suceed in life. To help and improve your relationship with food, family, friends and most importantly with self.

Spirituality is defined as one's personal relationship with divinity and focuses primarily on ones individual experiences of the transcendent. Health is defined as healing the body, mind and soul from inside out. Spirituality and health are vitally important to the psychological well-being of black wombmen. The two fit like a hand to a glove. In order for the black wombman to rise and reclaim back her leadership role in her community, spirituality and health must be reconnected and become harmonious and balanced within.

Our approach to facilitating the Black Wombman Empowered Health workshop is unique, empathic, holistic, creative and empowering. So book your ticket and be a part of an authentic experience. Come and enjoy soulful connections with like minded sisters as you reclaim your health, spirituality and life. Embrace a new way of being, perceiving and experience greater freedom, joy and well being. Bring along a journal and wear comfortable clothing. We look forward to seeing you there!!

Miss Africa Netherlands 2015-2016 Sponsorship/Partnership

Registration for the 3rd Edition (2015-2016) of the Miss Africa Netherlands Pageant is almost closing. As a result, Sponsorship/Partnership opportunities are now open.

We are contacting You from the Miss Africa Netherlands in Amsterdam, a non-profit, apolitical and non-religious organisation with the objective to empower women of African descent residing in the Netherlands, promote African Beauty and culture in its diversity. We celebrate strong, talented and committed women with beauty and brains (beauty from inside out) who are determined to bring change to their communities.

Among many of our activities, we organize the Miss Africa Netherlands Pageant; a pageant aimed at empowering the girl child, showcasing and promoting African cultures/tradition in diversity, instill the spirit of giving back, community leadership and ambassadorial spirit, encourage leadership skills, promote advocacy, poise, charisma and provide a unique platform for personal/self development and networking opportunities just to mention but a few.

So far, we are delighted to have received registrations from 24 contestants from 17 countries. The diversity of the registration is a strong testament of the enthusiasm displayed by contestants to be involved in an event which provides a better understanding of Africa in miniature, its culture, beauty and talents. Only one contestant will emerge as a finalist per country.

It would be an honor for us, and for the Contestants, if You would be willing to participate as a Sponsor/Partner in the upcoming 3rd edition of Miss Africa Netherlands. We have listed some of the benefits for sponsorship on our website.

We intend to have the 3rd Edition of the Miss Africa Netherlands Pageant (“Miss Africa Netherlands 2015-2016) sometime in November 2015 in Amsterdam at a venue to be confirmed with a summary of activities.

We also welcome the possibility for products for our gift bags for the contestants. Funds for this event will be directed towards necessary expenditures to give the occasion the grandeur it deserves.

It should be recalled that, by supporting the role models of today, we strengthen our collective tomorrow. As a sponsor/partner, you would contribute to a hopeful future of Africa by helping one individual identify, develop and refine personal attributes such as self-esteem, public speaking ability, self confidence just to mention but a few; qualities that would assist her throughout her life and the lives of others.

Miss Africa Netherlands also reaffirms its objectives in empowering the girl child, increasing access to education, increase access to healthcare, health education and fighting diseases, advocating for women and children’s rights, encourage women’s initiatives in the Netherlands as well as Africa: Miss Africa Netherlands celebrates strong and committed women.

We also reaffirm our commitment to the positive growth of women by stressing the importance of Modesty, Education, Communication, poise and social development skills. Our Pride in organizing this pageant is designed to inspire leadership qualities, promote commitment to community, encourage academic excellence, and reinforce high ethical standards and above all, to empower young girls.

In addition to its fostering role in positive youth development, Miss Africa Netherlands also encourages its young winners to become active participants in effective charitable and community events by embracing the spirit of “giving back” to their local communities. We also stress the importance of education for women. To that end, we will be awarding the titleholders Educational Scholarships and Sponsored gifts & prizes to further this endeavor.

With over 7000 visitors on our website the last few days, we are convinced we have an ideal opportunity for organizations/individuals to promote their businesses. We would very much like to discuss these possibilities with you further and would be most grateful if you could contact us at your earliest convenience. I will also follow up in the course of the coming days, to see if you have any questions or require additional information.
