I’m Nicole and I’m am a full time pre-school teacher and the founder of the Empower Me Program Inc

What’s your WHY behind working with young people?

I want to empower young children to be confident within their own skin and be the best version of themselves. I want them to know that there is a whole world out there for them to seek out and explore. My role as a youth mentor is to provide them with opportunities and strategies to feel capable and confident and to go out and make their dreams happen.

Tell us about your business:

Empower Me Program Inc is a Not For Profit organisation that provides opportunities for young children and adolescents to attend workshops and camps that educate and promote; self-esteem, body image, resilience and anti-bullying.

We run camps including Teen girl 13yrs-16yrs, Boy’s 10yrs-14yrs and Tween girls 9yrs-12yrs.

If you could give one piece of advice to your teen self, what would it be?

It’s ok to just be yourself. You are perfect just the way you are. Never change for anyone.
