📷 Faye-Chantelle Mondesir Biography
Faye – Chantelle Mondesir, whose creative alias is ‘Empress Faye’ is an Entrepreneur, Publisher/ Author/ Writer/ Editor, Creative/ Artiste Mastermind, Web & Graphic Developer & Designer, Video Producer/ Editor, Mother, Wombman. She is, in summary, a visionary and pioneer which, is obvious in her innovative creations.
Born on the quaint, exotic tropical island of Saint Lucia, nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean almost four decades ago, was this exquisite female. Her life journey was destined to positively impact those who would become the direct beneficiaries of her many skills and talents — but beyond all this, her balanced, luminous personality.
Those who have grown to favour her character relate — attesting with genuine accounts of how she has evolved into a woman of integrity, high morale and standards over 40 decades. A professional businesswoman — Ms. Mondesir, the epitome of homeostasis, represents equilibrium — leveraging her professional life with her personal existence as a mother of five beautiful children. She appreciates laughter, love — is passionate about many things — charismatic, intelligent, wise, caring, thoughtful, helpful and above all, a terrific listener, genuine and loyal friend.
A born innovator— not only has she evolved beyond her own human existence and grown to recognise, accept and embrace her innate divine abilities and creativity —she helps others to tune in to and cultivate theirs. “We are spiritual beings enjoying this beautiful, unique human experience,” is her perception of life.
So, what does her rare name represent? ‘Faye’ is derived from the Middle English word ‘faie’ meaning “fairy”, or possibly from the Old French word meaning loyalty, belief, confidence and trust. The name ‘Chantelle’ also springs forth from French origin. The name means singer (to sing, or song) — which explains her love and passion for Creative Arts, Entertainment and Music art forms. There is so much which identifies Faye-Chantelle — her exclusive abundance of depth is what resonates with supporters of her brands.
The only child of her mother — she has flourished into a beautiful ‘old soul’ — an intelligent, creative and spiritual young woman whose wisdom has far surpassed her years. Additionally, she was privileged to be the first of seven offspring of her father.
Upon advancing from the St. Joseph’s Convent, her alma matta and the second all-female school she attended as a girl — (her foundation being the Ave Maria Girls’ School) — she continued on to the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College to embark upon a career in the field of Hospitality Studies. After a short tenure of employment locally, she migrated to the UK to continue her studies; this time pursuing Business, Management and Accounting at London, England’s Lambeth College.
Returning to St.Lucia after many years, she enjoyed a successful career in the Tourism sector, amassing accumulative comprehensive experience firstly as line staff and then advancing to supervisory and managerial portfolios — until she began feeling the need for change career-wise, having seemingly arrived at the pinnacle of her career within the industry. Her innate writer’s passion had long been bubbling up over the years, with an urgent need to emerge. In 2011 she launched her own digital publications (In The SpotLyght Feature Magazine and Unveiling of the Faith Magazine). With this, she decided to explore other avenues through which her creative skill would be gainfully utilised, while being of vital service to the wider public.
Upon submitting her resume to her media company of choice (The STAR Publishing Saint Lucia) — she was immediately summoned to her first interview and within a couple of days, her second. In a week, Ms. Mondesir became an employee of the most prominent, highest-ranking media company in Saint Lucia at that time, in terms of quality and professional standards. Here began her career within Media & Mass Communications — as a Journalist (Reporter/ Writer), Digital Content Manager and just before the end of her tenure, Editor of the popular 2Nite Magazine.
Within her portfolio as Digital Manager of the STAR website and related Social Media platforms — although already utilising her graphic skills — she further embraced other key roles within the Graphic Department, which vastly broadened her expertise in the fields of Print Media, Mass Communications and Journalism. She subsequently moved on to becoming the Office Supervisor and Office Administrator at an established ICT company, Converge Solutions and then into radio, co-hosting a weekly music programme ‘FLAMZ YoU4RIA’ alongside Richard Glace (MackieMac) at Radio Free Iyanola (RFI). Her final portfolio before her permanent flight into absolute career independence was that of General Manager of Kairi FM Radio and Graphic TV. Ms. Mondesir now operates her own media business, Meditationz Media Network (MMN) — which features Transcendental Meditationz Radio online radio station and on-demand visual platforms.
A born entrepreneur — though having been gainfully employed and amassing relevant experience across the board for the better part of 13 years in between her travelling/ educational stints, her passion to operate her own business was never dormant and remained impossible to quench.
With this growing desire and the persistently insatiable flame burning within — she finally ventured onto her own pursuits on April 4th of 2018 — officially registering, fully devoting and immersing herself in the development of her own brands, holistic products and services. Herein lay the formal launch, birthing of her business group and long-awaited merger of professional expertise — the pinnacle of her professional career.
“I can truly say that I am happy and in a peaceful place now. I am confident that I have evolved into my divinely ordained position, doing what I was born to do, fulfilling my purpose. I am on the journey of achieving my goals — utilising all the creative energies which I have been blessed with — while simultaneously engaging all my in-born skills and talents which is an excellent thing.
While it is alot of work managing my business group, I thoroughly enjoy the independence, flexibility and fredom of working for myself. I feel good being able to serve people — it brings me absolute joy and contentment helping to solve their problems, empowering business owners and entrepreneurs, helping to grow their businesses.
I believe in maximising as my personal rule and am passionate about extending comprehensive support to my clientele, helping to meet their needs and manifest their visions. I am truly living my fullest potential — because to live and labour without pursuing those things we love most, though employed — is no authentic living at all! Too often people exist from day-to-day, struggling through the burdensome routine of an unfulfilling job they despise, void of real passion for the work they do simply for survival. People like myself must honour the process which is part of life, recognising that this is all part of the journey toward arriving at our desired place.” This was her testimony at the dawn of 2018.
What the future has in store for this young, ambitious woman, time alone will reveal! One thing’s for certain though, she will surely be doing some wonderful things — positively impacting those within her network with the help of her CREATOR whom she always gives homage to.
Her advice to everyone is, “Do everything with great, in-depth passion, love and commitment and do what you love the most! Foster and invest in the things which you are very passionate about. NEVER be afraid of investing in yourself, this is PARAMOUNT to one’s success! Always be GRATEFUL in everything and in each circumstance, never stop smiling — ALWAYS make yourself happy! Never depend on others for your happiness and peace — you are both the author and creator of your life. Be content and appreciative of even the minuscule things. Daily develop self and constantly do introspection to become the highest version of yourself — a spiritual, intellectual and overall well-rounded being who is holistically grounded, thankful and balanced.”
She goes on to share, “Identify the light in negative situations and embrace humour as often as it comes. Laughter and smiles are priceless, so laugh as often as you can. Embrace life and ALWAYS LIVE IN THE MOMENT. Never overthink or worry, always GIVE and do your best — be forever grateful for everything in your life — the good makes you even more brilliant and bad situations grow you.
Consistently give love; put SOURCE ABOVE ALL — love yourself, offspring, spouse, family and friends, all people and things in the universe as much as you can … Oh — and ALWAYS enjoy the momentous experience of LIVING IN THE MOMENT!” she concludes with a smile.
