It’s official, the amazing Self-Esteem Team will be providing a session
at our Girls Teen Empowerment Conference taking place on 8th March,
2016, find out more at www.rockingurteens.com
The Self-Esteem Team are a trio of women who tour the UK’s schools and
colleges delivering presentations on mental wellbeing, body image and
exam stress. They consist of Cosmo Columnist and TV Pundit Natasha
Devon, musician Grace Barrett and ShowBiz Editor Nadia Mendoza.
SET’s use their backgrounds in media to tackle the issues affecting
today’s teens in a new and engaging way, allowing their students to
celebrate their individuality and navigate our culture on their own
terms. They each have personal experience of mental illness and their
founding principle is that they never patronise. They have won awards
from Parliament and from the Mental Health Association and this year
founder Natasha was given an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours.
SET’s have always let teenagers lead their agenda. To make their lesson
plans, they interviewed hundreds of teens and asked them what would help
them be healthier, happier and fulfil their potential. They then
consulted with psychologists and experts to produce their classes. Their
book ‘The Self-Esteem Team’s Guide to Sex, Drugs WTFs?!!’ with a
foreword by Zoella was published this year and contains the twenty
questions they are most often asked by teenagers, answered in their
trademark honest, funny and solution-led way.
SET’s are delighted to be speaking at the Rocking Your Teens conference.
Natasha said: “we trust young people to make smart decisions if they’re
given the right information and the way we have seen our past students
grow and flourish proves that we are right. It’s fantastic that we can
come to an event that celebrates being a teenager because we really
enjoy working with them every single week”.
