That's the question we asked 30 girls today at Blackpool and the Fylde College at the end of our Oysters and Pearls event and do you know what they said?
"I will believe in myself."
"I will try to be confident."
"I will take every opportunity given to me."
"I will change my mindset to positive."
Thanks to my fabulous team and to 30 fabulous Lancashire women who shared their time and their wisdom, we had a day filled with inspiration, fun and learning.
The girls not only learned about the ins and outs of many careers, but also about listening, being focussed, being present, being daring and being their own 'loving boot'.
The messages from our speakers. Alison Malcolm and Katy Mason were about stepping outside your comfort zone, choosing great supporters and finding your purpose, which sometimes takes many years.
Heather Hardy CEO of Lancashire Charity Horseheard, offered 12 free places for the girls to work with horses on a Self Awareness and Life skills course, an incredible opportunity for any teenager wanting to develop their confidence and resilience and all the places were snapped up within 5 minutes.
Actress Amy Strange inspired everyone with her own journey into acting and exercises involving lemons, balloons containing dreams and a human orchestra. It really was a day with a difference that truly made a difference.
Thank you to the college for a lovely lunch and to North and West Lancashire Chamber of Commerce for helping us promote the day.
And it doesn't end there....... all of our wonderful ladies have offered to mentor a student going forwards, which will truly change lives.
So WOW and a massive thanks to everyone who helped me to promote the event, we will be delivering more of them in the Spring at colleges across Lancashire so watch this space!
