Speaker Head Shot

Ann Javan-Oyier

Ann is a Kenyan Lady, 37 years of age, working in Grand Cayman as a swim coach. She has been working with athletes of different levels, nationalities, and ages for more than ten years. She spends a lot of her time learning more about and researching sports psychology and general psychology.

A mindset centered on growth was not something she had as a young girl, but after developing it, Ann ended up doing things she never thought were possible. For instance, she conquered the highest peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro. She became one of the best breaststroke swimmers in her club. Her biggest achievement was becoming the first native African female Scuba Dive Instructor.

Ann follows the works of Carol Dweck and Angela Duckworth.
