A group of Year 9 girls were selected to attend the ‘Rocking Ur Teens’ event at the prestigious Thomson Reuters offices in Canary Wharf, London on the 12th March 2015. The aim of the Teen Empowerment Conference was to inspire, increase career aspirations and also help teen girls to recognise that they can make a difference in their community and the world as a whole. The day was hosted by award winning presenter Remel London and included keynote speeches provided by Emma Barnett (Women’s Editor of the Telegraph), Yasmin Ali (Young Woman Engineer of the year 2013) and the Mandeville Sisters (Presenters and Vloggers) who shared life experiences and inspiring messages. There were workshops on leadership, entrepreneurship and technology. The day culminated with a final session on social change where the girls pledged to make a difference. Overall it was a great day; Teen Empowerment, all the way!
