What Schools, Parents and Professionals are Saying
Marina was great with the girls. She established a trusting bond and not only helped them confront their insecurities, she openly exposed hers. The girls definitely left the session with a deep understanding of how the images they see (and often aspire to) in magazines and on social media are not realistic.

I am the father of four, the eldest two have completed these sessions. I cannot speak highly enough of this program. It should be in every school in Australia.

We ran the Beautiful Minds in our school and the kids are still talking about these sessions.
Mrs Jacqui McLachlan
What a pleasure it was to welcome Beautiful Minds to our College this year. The ‘healthy friendships’ seminar was most engaging, encouraging and a unique opportunity for students to share stories and open their hearts. I would highly recommend this program for all young girls who are seeking to find their inner beauty! Marina, thank you for your creativity, wisdom and compassionate approach.
Thank you Marina for bringing Beautiful Minds to our school! As Supervisor of Girls, it is hard to find effective and engaging presentations on topics that are difficult to talk about. Your presentations were always relevant and the students were able to actively participate in the sessions.
My students have loved attending your sessions and were thrilled to be offered the opportunity to take part in BU Day.

We are not a one off inspirational ‘sugar high’ that arrives and delivers a ‘fluffy’ talk about how to love yourself. We see many presenters going into schools telling young people to ‘be happy’ and ‘you can do it’ and ‘believe in yourself’. This is all lovely but does not give our kids any actual support and tools that they can implement into their daily lives. We are very focused on leaving students with action steps that will actually make a difference to their world. We also support headspace as our charity partner and this helps us ensure we are up to date on all relevant facts relating to mental health.

Yes, however we may need to pass on any costs directly associated with this.
Absolutely. During the conclusion, we ask the students to reflect on the day and record their thoughts for us. We collate all this feedback and provide your school with a summary. We also include any observations we have made throughout the day that we think may be of interest. As we realise feedback needs to be timely, we usually have this completed by the next week. We also seek additional feedback from the school, this is when we are able to gauge the response from parents and learn more about the long-term impact of our programs.
