You have changed my life. Your story, your ideas expanded my thinking 10 times and after your talk I thought I could own my own business.
Listening to you I realise that anything is possible in my life.
And I realise I've wasted so much time. I wasted my entire primary school just mucking around when I could've been focused.
I've never heard of anyone around here being successful.Maya (13)
I really wanted to say thank you for taking the time to speak to us.
I've had troubles in my life too and it was great to see
that it just never stopped you.
My mum and dad are divorced, we are poor, there is lots of crime and violence in my family.Sarah
I realised if it wasn't for you my life would never have changed.
I have noticed a huge difference in the girls who have been participating in the program. I see them using their voice and their words more confidently. Where there were previously problematic issues and the retreated, they are now able to talk about things that matter to them. I find them genuinely wanting to learn and talking about how they would like to make a difference in the world.Assistant School Principal

What the Parents say…
“My daughter was keen but a bit shy before the workshop. After the first session she was bubbling with enthusiasm, appeared more confident, she was happy to attend in her usual unique style of dressing on day 2 which indicates to me she felt confident, inspired and well supported in the workshop. All of which show the professionalism, direction, acceptance and genuine passion of the people running this kind of workshop.”
“It gave my girls a broader view on what they could achieve in the future, they felt inspired when they arrived home”
“My daughter said the workshop was confidence building and she learned to construct a business plan and analyse what would be the biggest challenges and how to overcome these. My daughter also said that day 1 was fun and empowering, day 2 she couldn’t wait to get to because it focused more on business and “finances”. She loved the workshop.”
“My daughter is hoping a follow up work shop is on the horizon!”
