WOWwoman Campaign Award


I am absolutely thrilled to have been named a Girlguiding Scotland WOWwoman for my work as a musician and teacher. The campaign aims to empower girls and young women by building their confidence, raising there aspirations and offering them amazing opportunities.

Learning a musical instrument is a fantastic way for young women to gain confidence and self belief, as well as learning a new skill. The students I teach all work extremely hard to achieve their goals, and make my job a complete pleasure. I am very lucky to teach such wonderful girls who I am sure will go on to do amazing things.

I think WOWwomen is a brilliant campaign to encourage girls that anything is possible. I had some fantastic experiences myself as a Guide when I was younger. Not only did I make some lifelong friends, I was also lucky enough to go on several trips including one to the world centre Our Chalet in Switzerland. Being selected as a WOWwoman by the young member of Girlguiding makes it even more special.
