INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY - SOLD OUT | Pavilion on Northbourne | Sunday, 10. December 2017

INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY.

My name is Camille and I am currently organising a vitally important, not for profit landmark event. This event will be the very first of its kind in Canberra.

The event is entitled INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY. This is an event for the 'every girl', not just for those in business.

The idea behind this event was born of numerous conversations I have recently held with a diverse collection of young women in Canberra. These women are young academics, entrepreneurs, social enterprise pioneers, fierce community advocates, designers, change makers, care givers, teachers and visionaries.

These women know that success, knowledge and wisdom, whilst hard won, is not only for the 'confident girls' or the ‘nice girls’ who always behave well and conform to societal behavioral norms. They know that sometimes, it takes a little more than the old '**** em with kindness' routine to get it all done.

This event will be a diverse networking, public speaking and empowerment opportunity for those women of adverse backgrounds determined to be heard and for those who could benefit from listening.

The event will draw together young women from vastly different social and cultural backgrounds whom share the common experience of having faced adversity, whatever it is that adversity means to them.

The event will be a celebration of the achievements of young women who have already lived a ‘big life’. Whether it be through loss, disease, disability, Domestic Violence, sexual abuse or trauma. Those who have overcome challenging childhoods or misfit parents. Those women who have overcome mental illness and addiction and gone on to obliterate the limits set by the stigma attached to their life experience.

The event will celebrate those young women building brands and businesses. Young women who are achieving what were considered 'unattainable' goals whilst living with a spectrum disorder or intellectual difficulty. Those women conquering cultural and language barriers, who speak boldly on what it means to be 'one of the many shades of brown and beyond' in what is still very much a white professional world.

The event will celebrate the bloggers, community activists, designers, social entrepreneurs, public servants, business owners, medical professionals, refugees, mothers and those young women spearheading local religious and cultural empowerment movements. It will celebrate those women who have been bullied, or are determined to overcome mental health issues, eating disorders or self-esteem issues.

The event will support and give rise to those young women who might not speak as boldly as others, but whom might benefit from exposure to their strength and presence. It will serve those who wish to simply sit in and listen or contribute in their own individual way.

The potential benefit that the young women of Canberra stand to gain from an event of this nature is immeasurable. For this reason, I would like to request your valuable assistance in helping to bring it to life.

If you feel that you or someone you know has something to offer an event such as this, then I want you to share this event.

Demand that I educate myself on what it is that you stand for and how you are kicking adversity.

If you would like to contribute to the production of this incredible event, please get in touch ASAP via sales@.

  • #INVINCIBLE **** STROLL ➖ There are far too many Mum's who know how suffocating it can be to be cooped up inside all day without adult convo and god knows I love to chat 😂 Starting Tuesday 10 October at the Floriade entrance of Lake Burley Griffin, a few gals and I will start a regular Tuesday morning stroll followed by a picnic/lunch of some sort with our babes/bellies. I'll post the time location each Monday the day prior, all ****'s + kids welcome regardless of age & background. It's only once a week to begin with, but hopefully it will go a long way to getting some of those more isolated mum's out of the house and into a bit of exercise and conversation. If you know someone who might benefit, pass it on girl.

  • TICKETS are selling like crazy! INVINCIBLE Teyarna. 🔥 Teyarna has recently agreed to jump on board for our second INVINCIBLE WOMEN OF ADVERSITY event. The first of which sold out to venue capacity at 150 tix in three weeks. Teyarna is one of the youngest, most empowered women I have had the pleasure of meeting on my INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY journey. Not too long ago, Teyarna managed to escape a horrific situation of https://www.facebook.com/events/2449248055300242/?ti=iclDomestic Violence. She secured a DVO protecting herself, her son and gorgeous twin girls. Unfortunately Teyarna had not been able to take with her, her two step children whom she had cared for as her own. Shortly after Teyarna left, her estranged husband murdered her 9 year old step son and critically injured her 11 year old Stepdaughter. His own biological children. He had been able to retain care of them after refusing to return them to their mother following a holiday as Child Services had deemed him to be fit to parent. Today Teyarna expertly juggles her time with her new partner and four gorgeous kids under four, along side a full time job in a law firm. Further, Teyarna does all of this whilst maintaining a close relationship with the biological mother of her stepchildren and her role as an advocate for her adored stepson. Teyarna will both break our hearts and empower us with her story of recovery. #invincibleyoungwomenofadversity #invincibleshe #iamthebearnow #domesticviolenceadvocate #domesticviolence

  • Repost from one of our INVINCIBLE Key speakers Loren Faingaa. Check out her blog below! AN INVINCIBLE LOVE. I was recently approached and invited to speak at an upcoming event in Canberra titled INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY. An event dedicated to young women from all reaches of life and backgrounds sharing something in common: an adverse life experience. Not long after I decided to attend the event, I started to think about what it really means to be invincible and so I looked it up online. INVINCIBLE Incapable of being conquered, defeated, or subdued. When I wrote my first blog post a little while back I had contemplated adding one more paragraph, but then I realised it probably deserved a blog post of its own....

  • INVINCIBLE LOREN. @lorenmariefaingaa 🙌🏼 At just 26 Loren is a kick *** lawyer, wife and now mother to an absolutely perfect brand new baby girl, Georgia. ➖ Loren will be travelling all the way from Melbourne for INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY on 10 December 2017 to discuss INVINCIBLE MOTHERHOOD! Loren and her husband were recently floored with the news that their brand new babe was born with the incredibly rare genetic disorder, Sotos Syndrome. Sotos is an incredibly variable disease, meaning that there is no real way to predict how minor or severe Baby Georgia's condition will be; or how she will be effected in the long term. Heartbreakingly there is no reason or cause for such a condition. There is no warning and any one of us, young or old, could unexpectedly find ourselves navigating the unknown and often terrifying waters that is raising a child with special needs. ➖ Loren will be bravely talking about her new blog 'A Mothers Instinct' and what it means when that perfect ideal we all develop whilst pregnant with our first babes, comes crashing down around you. Tickets just $55 LINK IN BIO. @invincibleshe_blog #invincibleyoungwomenofadversity #invincibleshe

  • INVINCIBLE Sam A few weeks ago Sam sent me an email with a little snippet of her story. Further expressing her interest in contributing to the INVINCIBLE YOUNG WOMEN OF ADVERSITY event scheduled for December this year. I am ridiculously pleased that I can confirm she will attend this insanely important event as one of our key speakers and panelists. The list of which is growing by the day! Until I met with Sam in person this morning, I really had no idea just how much this woman had been through and how truly graceful her rise from the ashes has been. After having attempted to take her own life in July 2016, this young mum; with no financial support or backing, took her "shitty little credit card" as she describes it and built her salon KOVU with her bare hands. Literally. She built it. KOVU means scar but when you walk into the beautifully decorated crisp white room it feels like anything but. These days, Sam is happy and successful in her recovery. She uses her flourishing business as a platform to help those Canberran women in need by donating two hours of her time each week to pamper some incredible local ladies. I really hope to see all of your faces in the sea of INVINCIBLE women that will be the fierce crowd of exceptional attendees at the Event in December. Early bird Tickets are just $55 so get in quick, they are limited and flying out the door. Please see the link in my bio for all the info! This is an event for the every girl, no matter what your current situation or background may be. Camille INVINCIBLE SHE. https://www.facebook.com/events/248596002213572/?ti=icl XO

Not just for those in business. 🌿 To date the support has been insane with more than 3 dozen local women, business women, academics and social gamechangers jumping on board. Together with a fierce collective of local contributing businesses.
