2019 Guest Speaker - Rebecca Sparrow
Over the past 25 years Rebecca has been a travel writer, a magazine editor, a newspaper columnist, a TV scriptwriter and a novelist. She is perhaps best-known as the author of three best-selling non-fiction books for teenage girls designed to help them navigate those tricky high school years. Those books include Find Your Tribe (and 9 other things I wish I'd known in high school); Find Your Feet (The 8 things I Wish I'd Known Before I Left High School) and the best-selling Ask Me Anything (heartfelt answers to 65 anonymous questions from teenage girls).
Aside from writing books Rebecca writes for Mamamia, plays agony aunt to teenage girls on the Ask Me Anything podcast and runs an online course called The Lighthouse Plan to help parents build deeper bonds with their daughters. Rebecca is an ambassador for The Pyjama Foundation, ReachOut Parents and #TeamGirls a joint initiative by Suncorp and Netball Australia. She is a mother to three kids.
The FOGS Committee would like to thank Bec for her inspiring talk at the 2019 event, great tips and advice from years of expertise in the field! Awesome!
