"I'm not afraid, I was born to do this” translates as follows:
-“Nihil timeo. Ad hoc faciendum natus sum”, if the phrase refers to a male person.
-“Nihil timeo. Ad hoc faciendum nata sum", if the phrase refers to a female person such as exactly Joan of Arc who said something like this during her trial.

-I'm not afraid = NIHIL TIMEO
-I was born = NATUS / NATA SUM
-to do = AD FACIENDUM
-this = HOC
Also note that the above mentioned phrase is a synthesis of what Jeanne d'Arc would have said in Medieval Latin, i.e. “"Respondebat quod non timebat armatos, quia habebat viam suam expeditam; quia, si armati essent per viam, habebat Deum Dominum suum, qui sibi faceret viam ad eundum juxta dominum Delphinum, et quod erat nata ad hoc faciendum." (= "I do not fear them. Should there be soldiers on my way, I'll have with me the Lord my God who will open the road to the Lord Dauphin for me. It is what I am born for."
