Every teenage girl has a fire in
her belly, particularly at QACI. We have a school full of girls who want to be
the future change makers of the world. This is what Tanya Meesmann, the CEO of Girl
Shaped Flames (GSF) focused her business on.
GSF is a young organisation born in
Brisbane, with the focus of inspiring and connecting teenage girls by
introducing them to empowered women in every industry and profession. This
comes in many forms, whole day events, monthly meetups, company visits and even
a camp later this year in July addressing courage.
I have been lucky enough to be
involved with Girl Shaped Flames for about a year now. Another Year 12 student and I
were sponsored to join a Science event where we were able to ask questions
and discuss with scientists from all types of fields. From there, I joined the 2019 program and
became a girl shaped flame. I had free access to a monthly meetup, and
access to other events throughout the year to continue extending myself.
As a proud Girl Shaped Flame, I encourage all
QACI students to take the opportunity and grow their confidence. Tanya has been very kind and given me a code so
that any QACI student can get $50 dollars off their 2019 signup when they use
‘WEN883’ as a discount code.
