Flourish Girl  focuses on empowering teenage girls to become unstoppable women in today's world. The aim with Flourish Girl is to create safe spaces for teenage girls across Australia so they can identify the barriers that stop them from being themselves and fully self expressed.  

We navigate through topics such as comparison, body image, social pressures and the idea of perfectionism.
