Despite the body positivity and self-love being on the rise, one quarter of teens report not feeling comfortable in their own skin. According to Invisalign Australia’s 2018 Teen Confidence Survey, quite a few of our teens are experiencing a significant level of low self-confidence.
Of the 1,000 teens surveyed, three in four (74%) said that their lack of confidence was down to the way they look.
In response to these alarming results, Invisalign Australia is bringing to life the nation’s first ever self-confidence panel event led by four inspiring young Australians. On Saturday, March 9th, 2019 Invisalign Australia will drive awareness about the rising issue to teens and parents at the home of Sydney’s biggest smile, the iconic Luna Park.
Channel Nine’s Today Show news anchor, Deborah Knight, will host the speaker event headlining, Perks of Her founder and influencer Sarah Ellen, previous X-Factor contestant/musician Jai Waetford. Entrepreneurs Briella Brown, founder of Your Closet Hire, and Morgan Hipworth, Bistro Morgan founder, will also share their insight into channelling the confidence into achieving life goals, as well as touching on their journey of how confidence in their teen years allowed them to break the mould all the while still being a teen.
Through an interactive questionnaire, the young trend-setters will share their personal journeys of how confidence in their teen years empowered them to develop resilience and take on their dreams.
Sarah Ellen states, Being active on social media from a young age, I’ve had to spend a lot of time working on my own self-confidence given that it can be a place that breeds a lot of negativity. When Invisalign Australia shared that three quarters of teens aren’t comfortable in their own skin, it inspired me to take more action in encouraging young people like myself to continue the discussion on self-confidence and to better understand the tools in building a network of support around them.
Participants can register for the free event HERE with 200 seats available to parents and teens looking to gain first-hand knowledge of how to equip the life-changing skill of confidence from teens who have already paved the way.
Participants will not only have the chance to meet their favourite panel speakers, they will also enjoy free Luna Park ride tokens, a mouth-watering range of fresh food and drinks and loads of fun giveaways on the day.
