Jiggy Yoon

Na Eun ‘Jiggy’ Yoon is a motivational speaker and mental coach helping competitive athletes, relentless entrepreneurs, and driven students increase the longevity of their performance and demand for excellence. Born to an extremely traditional Asian family in South Korea, Jiggy knows what it’s like to relentlessly seek A+ performance while also experiencing the toxic end of the spectrum. This is why, unlike many other motivational speakers, Jiggy brings awareness to the importance of mental health, burnout prevention, and self-compassion, just as deeply as she focuses on intense work ethic, perseverance, and self-discipline.
Jiggy was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes during her freshman year of college in 2011. As personal hardships in life accumulated overtime and walking through the T1D journey with no support only got lonelier, Jiggy’s life story includes her suicide attempt using her diabetes supplies during her sophomore year. This incident was one of many experiences that sparked Jiggy’s passion and mission to share the importance of mental health to all audiences, especially those with Type 1 and Asian-Americans.
With her outspoken transparency, unapologetic authenticity, and a whole lot of love to give, along with her Mental Health First Aid certification, Jiggy is committed to creating a space where everyone can feel seen, heard, and celebrated.
