my passion, my drive, my why.
The reason why Energised Minds exists and why it's so important to help young people be happy, feel confident and simply love themselves inside and out.
hi i'm Ali!
I'm a Youth Mentor in Perth WA. I created Energised Minds as a place to help create confidence, self love & worthiness for tweens and teens to show them just how AMAZING they are, and show them that their worth is not measured by looks or weight. Something that I wish I had or could have been a part of when I was growing up.
I run workshops, 1:1 mentoring, and have lots of free downloaded resources on my website primarily for youth aged 10 - 18, but also work with kids younger as well as young adults in their 20s. My programs act as early interventions to help prevent youth growing up and developing things such as anxiety, eating disorders and poor mental health in general. These programs are created to have lasting positive impact on these young people's lives for years to come and overall celebrate the person they are and the beauty of their uniqueness. More resilience, empowerment, individuality and self love.
Growing up and being a teen wasn’t terrible by any means, but what I do know is I felt uncomfortable in my own skin, had a bad relationship with my body, no self love or confidence, hated participating in sports or doing speeches cause the attention was on me. I constantly compared myself to everybody and valued myself little to no worth because I didn’t look like the girls in magazines or the ones all the boys chased after! I wasn’t the absolute smartest, or the most funniest, so in my eyes I wasn’t good enough and thought I didn’t deserve to feel happy or have fun being me. My days were full of stress and anxiousness paired with a fake it till you make it smile so I didn’t “stand out” more... and these negative self hate foundations that surfaced stayed with me through my early 20s until I started to reflect and embrace everything I am and have to offer as ME! I valued my worth based on others for so long, and without even stopping to see how amazing I actually was! .
That’s why I’m a youth mentor, that's why I've created Energised Minds! I want to create that support network, a community, a group of awesome people, so no one, especially young people growing up in this already crazy world don’t feel like I did above! I want to help show them their possibilities, their incredible differences and why that’s good, be there to listen to them rather than tell them what to do or who to be, create fun and safe spaces to be creative and learn, and talk to them about real things and what’s important to them. An open space for self love and confidence building. The only limit is your mindset - I believe in you!
In a nutshell - I want to help tweens, teens and young adults grow
to be strong, happy & resilient individuals who love who they are!
