What We Do
IT’S OUR MISSION TO
give teens all over the world the tools and confidence
to shine from within.
Introducing our new book!
"Shine From Within; a teen girl's guide to life" is such a wonderful, well rounded book for teens. I work closely with teens and I see it first hand - life and growing up can be tough, but it doesn't have to be. This book is definitely something I would recommend every teenager read. It gives you tips, advice and courage to truly be confident in who you are!"Teigan Nash
About Shine From Within
I believe it takes a village to raise a child and it’s our mission to help girls realise just how bright they can shine.
I’ve been teaching teens since I was a teen myself and absolutely LOVE seeing our students embrace who they are and share their unique beauty with the world.
Our modern, wholistic training school…
Gives teen and tween girls the tools to shine from within through workshops, holiday courses, school-based programs, mother-daughter retreats, one-on-one coaching and our award-winning Youth Mentor Training, which trains women to create their own programs for youth in their communities. Based in South-east Queensland, Australia, we have taught thousands of girls and trained youth mentors in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
We believe that when we are truly happy within ourselves then we will treat our body, mind and spirit with care and respect. We will eat healthy, nourishing foods, we will present ourselves beautifully to the world and will have the confidence to chase our dreams, blitz through job interviews and take care of the peope and world around us with pride.
Our Tweens Course is the first of it’s kind offering a modern, holistic approach which combines deportment subjects, wellness and self-discovery in a concise, fun way for girls aged 10-12 years old.
