Fiona Harris: Online Session: Staying Positive and Creative!

Session Info:

One of Australia’s favourite performers and writers, Fiona Harris (Skithouse, Prank Patrol & Tangle) explores the notion of staying motivated, positive and creative in the face of adversity.

Through storytelling and multimedia this award-winning performer shares her struggles as a teenager, from her disastrous attempts to fit in to ultimately finding herself. Fiona has come a long way from the nerdy kid from a working-class background in the western suburbs of Melbourne. She’s faced a lot of challenges in her journey towards becoming a full-time writer and performer, and this is a heartfelt and motivational talk, which is hugely inspiring for teenagers.

By sharing her own awkward and embarrassing teenage stories, Fiona proves that everyone faces feelings of self-doubt and isolation. Through humour and storytelling, she highlights the importance of setting goals, collaborating with others, friendship and positive thinking.
