Girls are never too young to dream! In early October, 16 young women from around Queensland banded together for a two day summit here in Toowoomba – exploring what it means to be a girl with guts!

The Bella Influencers Summit raised the profile of the fight against women across our globe as well as here locally. There were six presentations delivered from discovering identity, purpose and strengths to insights into changing the culture and shaping our communities through the media, politics, social and the economic arena.

“This maiden event was a huge success and these girls are continuing to meet together to strategise how to bring change and hope to their communities,” said Bella Magazine Managing Editor Liz Hamilton.

“In the near future they will be launching a social media campaign including getting girls to write their stories about how they feel about the impact of media culture. They are also gathering girls within their own schools to help them raise their voice for matters that concern them.”

All of the delegates took a Bella Magazine Pack to engage local hairdressers to remove magazines that are toxic for the health and well-being and replace them with a Bella.

“Thanks so much for the 3 days,” said Sophie, one of the young girls who attended. “I honestly had an amazing time and I am so inspired! I really want to be involved. The summit was a huge success!”

“Thank you for a great experience,” said Lucy, another young participant.

Bella Influencers Summit will be held again 30 September to 2 October 2015, so stay tuned on Facebook for more details.
