This month we delivered our much loved Role Model Relay event at a school in Manchester. The idea is ask 4 inspirational women to share their journey and offer advice to a group of 13/14 year old girls then we invite a further 30 awesome female role models to engage in a speed mentoring session. The morning is high energy and high impact. Here is Ameilia, one of our role model speakers, the MD of Nicholas Austen Hair and Beauty Spa in Cheshire talking about her experience. She is only 26 but a force to be reckoned with and the girls, not surprisingly loved her!
‘So today I did something really awesome. A pretty amazing client of mine Jane, who has a superb company Girls Out Loud which helps support and influence young girls, asked me to do an inspirational speech at a secondary school in Wythenshawe. I stood in front of 95 13/14 year old girls and their teachers, something I was very nervous about let me tell you. but it was amazing. I’m so glad that I did it. And I feel honoured to have been asked. If today I have made even the smallest difference to even one girl’s thoughts about what life is like in the real world and the world of careers, then it makes it all totally worth it. I came away from today feeling super inspired by so many other powerful women and even more motivated to continue with my own dreams. Here’s to making a difference in the eyes of the children of our society and showing them hard work pays off. Aim high and dream big.
A massive thank you again Jane for asking me. It was fantastic.’
