A Wollongong woman who found her voice after being bullied at school and work is looking to reach many teenage girls at high schools in Sydney and the Illawarra in 2020.
Paula Stevens-Dunn told her inspirational story of rising above self doubts and gaining confidence at Illawarra Women In Business's October networking lunch on Friday.
She now helps teenagers and young women with a leadership program she has developed for students and employees in the workplace.
Her business No Limits Consulting works with adults and students on five foundations of confidence, conscious inclusion, cultivation of curiosity and a growth mindset.
Mrs Stevens-Dunn wants to create a forward thinking approach to life goals as well as a collaborative, compassionate and courageous leadership identity.
And is interested in talking to more Illawarra schools about implementing the program locally for students in Year 10 and 11.
