Dare to Dream Big Workshop


The Dare to Dream Big workshop is designed for girls & young women.

Using her own life story, Melissa will encourage & inspire young women to dream big & to never give up.

Growing up in a home with domestic violence, Melissa had to overcome many challenges from a very young age and in her last year of High School Melissa found herself pregnant with her first child at the age of 16. After constantly being told that she had ruined her life and that her life was now over, Melissa was determined to not let these comments define her life. Graduating high school 7 months pregnant, Melissa went on to University with a 1 year old in toe to become a Registered Nurse & later a Midwife.

After many years of working as a Registered Nurse & Midwife, Melissa founded a not-for-profit organisation called A Brave Life in 2015 that aims to help support young women in her community.

The Dare to Dream Big workshop goes for 35 mins with a 5 min Q & A.

With a motto of Dream it, Believe it, Achieve it, Melissa will cover topics on self worth, the importance of goal setting & ways to overcome the challenges & obstacles that prevent people from achieving their dreams.

Each student will receive a Dare to Dream Big card plus an inspirational quote card.
