Meet Ilona Parunakova
A 10X Best-Selling Author
Ilona Parunakova is a 10X Best-Selling Author, Diversity and Inclusion Expert/Speaker, Founder and CEO of IP Resilience Global, and Identity Architect and Happiness Amplifier.
Parunakova is a direct descendant of Armenian Genocide survivors during World War I and she survived wartime in the Republic of Georgia after the collapse of the USSR.
Over the years, Ilona has succeeded in turning her obstacles of war, loss, struggle to fit in, and every “no” in her life into her superpowers. Parunakova was born to a Ukrainian mother and an Armenian father in the Republic of Georgia. Her relatives lived to tell the horrific tales of war from the Ottoman genocide of the Armenian people during World War I.
Apart from surviving the terrors of war, Parunakova endured ethnic discrimination for a considerable amount of time. She experienced rejection from her grandparents, was mocked by her relatives, and was denied admission to universities. At that time, she felt rejected and an outcast as a result of the massive political discrepancies between Russia and Georgia. Throughout that discouraging season in her life, Parunakova fought her hardest to stay strong and found the inspiration to pursue further studies and accomplish exceptional feats.
Parunakova received the People’s Choice Award in a beauty pageant in the Republic of Georgia in 1998. She collected medals for completing a marathon in 2017 and triathlon in 2018. She speaks seven languages, including English, Russian, Armenian, Georgian, and Spanish, among others. Parunakova earned a BS in Business Administration and an MM Masters in Ministry. She is a candidate for a doctorate in Family Christian Counseling and a Ph.D. in Christian Philosophy.
Parunakova has been featured on Fox, NBC, CBC, and in Influencive, Powerhouse, and Forbes magazines. Her Christian faith has been very instrumental in her survival. It allowed Parunakova to see things from a positive perspective—that no matter what happens, God will always be in control of her destiny.
