If you are an Australian girl or woman with a dream, and need some extra help to get you there, don’t forget to apply for a Layne Beachley Aim for the Stars Foundation grant. As a 2012 recipient, I can highly recommend it. The grant includes financial assistance plus mentoring from Layne, media and life coaching, plus some other goodies. You can find details here. Applications close 16 November.
Meanwhile, Megan from the Foundation sent us on some professional photos from our time in Sydney. br />

Beautiful girls before the ball

Having a laugh. I think this was when I told her that I am a little too into fashion despite this appearance activism stuff!
I have such beautiful memories of my time in Sydney with the Aim for the Stars grant recipients, Layne and Megan, and am forever grateful for their support.
I read Layne’s biography over the weekend just gone, and after getting a deeper insight into her life, I really admire her drive and perserverance, rising above the adversities she’s experienced. She knew what she wanted to achieve, visualised it, worked hard and achieved it. What a woman!
