Girls given life toolkit at resilience workshop

IN THE modern world and with access to all the internet has to offer, there are many mixed or confusing messages for young women.

Processing all of these messages while staying true to inner values can be hard and it's why Enlighten Education educator Storm Greenhill-Brown runs workshops to give high school girls a toolkit to navigate them.

Mrs Greenhill-Brown ran two workshops in the South Burnett for Year 10 students in Murgon and Proston and for Kingaroy and St Mary's students.

The workshops were funded by South Burnett Women for Queensland Women's Week.

The workshops covered respectful relationships, deconstructing the media, decoding mixed messages, understanding and creating healthy and safe boundaries and making good choices.

Mrs Greenhill-Brown owns Enlighten Education and ran the workshop on Tuesday.

She started by teaching in Brisbane then bought the company that is now Australia wide.

"We also do positive affirmations and make a beautiful journal in the workshop,” she said.

"I think girls needs a toolkit and a strategy to understand all the crazy messages around them and not forget how powerful and amazing they are.”
