Throughout the last 11 posts in this blog series, I have reminded everyone to live in the present and enjoy every moment. However, this month, I am going to say that every so often it isn’t such a bad thing to look back and acknowledge the past for it only makes us more grateful for things we have in the present. This post is going to look back at the year that was 2019.
Events for teenagers
This month I am posting live from New York City. Crazy, I know. I recently graduated high school and this is my version of ‘schoolies’. However, before graduating, I went through one of the craziest, happiest, saddest and most unbelievable couple of weeks ever. Throughout the week I had a teacher tell me that although it is sad that I should live every moment and make the most of the time I had. Pretty much, they told me that I had to live in the present.
October 5. A day that for many, is just another cross on the calendar. However, as students (on holidays, or not), this day is more than just any other day. October 5 is internationally recognised as World Teachers Day, a day in which we recognise and celebrate the impact that teachers make on our lives.
This month, Holly looks at National Science Week and reminds us all of the incredible things that science brings to our daily lives. National Science Week is a time to celebrate people who work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) fields and this month’s Girl.Now blog is a great example of doing exactly that.
Held in the stunning natural surrounds of Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens auditorium in the heart of Brisbane. Camp Courage’s first ever 21 participants were in for a real treat, with beautiful sunny weather across the three days and a heap of activities designed to build their confidence and courage.
At the time of deciding what I wanted to write this month’s blog about, I had just had an argument (of sorts) with a friend (this was a couple months ago, June Girl Now has been in the works for a while!). Now, neither of us went about the situation in the right way and I know that I was worried about something else on that day but I learnt a very good lesson from it: keep your friends close.
In May, we celebrate mothers. We celebrate all that they do for us, their constant guidance and support and the love that they have for us. This month’s blog is a little different in the sense that it is a ‘thank you’ note from teenager’s to their mothers (or extraordinary motherly figures in their lives).
January’s theme was ‘Creativity’ and it was explored through meeting women who had forged creative careers, workshopping the girls’ own creative voices and understanding the stories shaping their world, and seeing behind the scenes at a dynamic, modern ad agency that was creating different forms of creative every day.
