Julie Mango  

Comedian, Certified Life Coach, Social Media Influencer & Mental Health Advocate; CEO of Julie Mango Productions LLC

Juliet Angelique Bodley, also known as Julie Mango, is a comedic actress, award-winning social media influencer, and mental health advocate. Her online skits, centered around Jamaican culture and featuring popular characters like Mavis and her daughter Janet, have garnered a global fanbase, accumulating millions of likes, shares, and followers, with many of her videos going viral. Bodley's diverse audience includes notable figures such as Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness, actress Ayesha Curry, musician Questlove, and the Marley siblings Ziggy, Sharon, and Rohan.

Born in Jamaica, Bodley initially pursued a career as a structural engineer but began exploring her comedic talent at age 12. Her accolades include the 2023 Daughter of the Soil Award from the Jamaica Independence Foundation, proclamations from Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke and Sen. Kevin S. Parker, and the title of Best Jamaican Social Media Personality from 2021 to 2023 by Jamaicans.com. She was also named 2023 Comedian of the Year by the International Reggae & World Music Awards and served as the 2022 Social Media Ambassador for Jamaica's Diamond Jubilee celebration.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Bodley transitioned from her corporate career to a more creative path. Her comedic talents led to guest appearances on podcasts, emceeing events, and multiple awards, but the shift from a stable 9-5 job to a less predictable creative career demanded resilience. Diagnosed with borderline personality disorder at a young age, Bodley experienced dark moments, often hiding her struggles while bringing joy to others. This prompted her to become an outspoken advocate for mental health, sharing her battles with depression and suicide attempts.

A Christian by upbringing, Bodley drew inspiration from the wisdom of figures like Henry David Thoreau and his philosophy of pursuing one's dreams confidently. In early 2024, she felt a significant shift in her life, now focusing on expanding her career in acting and public speaking on mental health. Bodley holds a structural engineering degree from the University of Technology, Jamaica, and a master's in engineering management from Florida International University. She is also a member of the Maxwell Leadership Certified Team and has completed John Maxwell Coaching Certification.

Speech Topics

Mental Health

As someone who has experienced the darkest depths of mental illness and survived THREE suicide attempts, I understand firsthand the pain and despair that can accompany mental health challenges. But I also know that recovery and healing are possible, and that by sharing my story, I can help others find the hope and strength they need to overcome their struggles.

In my talk, I will share my personal journey of healing and recovery, including the highs and lows, the setbacks and breakthroughs, and the strategies and tools that helped me get to where I am today. I will discuss the importance of seeking help, building a support network, and developing self-care practices that nurture both body and mind.

Drawing on the latest research and best practices, I will also explore the broader issues of mental health and wellness, including the stigma and shame that often surround mental illness, the importance of destigmatizing mental health challenges, and the role of self-compassion and empathy in healing.

My talk will be honest, vulnerable, and deeply inspiring, providing hope and encouragement to anyone struggling with mental health challenges or supporting someone who is. By sharing my story, I hope to help others find the strength and resilience they need to navigate their own journey of healing and recovery.

Self-Love for Men and Women

Yes, it is an anomaly to see a woman talking to men about self love and that is why I do it. The topic of self-love for men is about promoting and encouraging men to prioritize their mental and emotional well-being. It involves addressing common societal expectations and pressures that men face, such as the need to appear strong and self-sufficient, and encouraging them to embrace vulnerability and self-care practices. By learning to accept and love themselves, men can improve their relationships, increase their resilience, and live more fulfilling lives.

Self-love for women involves challenging societal expectations and pressures that women face, such as the pressure to look a certain way or fulfill traditional roles, and encouraging them to embrace self-compassion, self-care practices, and positive self-talk. By learning to accept and love themselves, women can improve their self-esteem, increase their resilience, and lead more fulfilling lives.
