Joel de Carteret
Our identity is central to who we are as human beings - and it is so often tightly connected to our upbringing and our family.
Today’s guest Joel has a lot to celebrate. He is a renowned film maker and world class storyteller, making beautifully crafted stories that touch the heart and move the soul. He is a sought after keynote speaker and combines film, music and photography into his unique delivery.
Amongst his success there was always a part of Joel that was lost.
Joel was born in the Philippines but was separated from his family and found in a busy marketplace when he was five years of age. It was like every parent and every child's nightmare.
Nearly 31 years on, having been adopted and raised by an Australian family, Joel embarked on what seemed like an impossible mission to track down his birth mother in the Phillipines. With virtually nothing to go on except knowing the date and location he was found, Joel undertook a journey that would change his life forever.
This is a powerful conversation with Joel that reminds how important it is to reconnect with our identity.
