“My mission is to motivate young women to be fearless, confident and have attitudes of self-love. Helping girls realise their worth and potential is my genuine passion and I like to share the message inspired by the wise words of Dr Seuss; 'You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re off to great places. Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!'
