Girl shaped flames!

October!!!! Ohhh, what does this month bring you?

Over here, we have another fabulous interview and episode of Heart and Hustle with the amazing Tanya Meessmann, from Australia! And our 103rd episode..

You are going to love Tanya and what she is putting out into the world to make it a better place for our young women! She is doing powerful work with Girl Shaped Flames, for these young women, ages 12–17 mostly, but moving into working with even younger girls too. And this is so important and necessary work and has a great wow factor when you see the changes in these young women and what they are being offered.. revolutionary for sure! And how cool, that I get to bring her to YOU!

We talk about her journey through different work places and how she got into working with these girls, being a filmmaker, and mentoring them, teaching them how valuable they are and giving them confidence, fueling them with inspirations and role models and extraordinary women!

Thoughts about the differences between war and terror, and the unpredictability of our world that these girls are being brought up in, I love Tanya’s views about empowering them and how great that these girls have this kind of support. And let it grow through Australia and around the world! Camp Courage!

View here and enjoy!
