Of all the questions from the dozens of teenagers here are a few responses from our panelist that hopefully you can apply to your career path.

Q. How important is it to network & know the right people?  

'What you know is incredibly important. You can know everyone in the world but you still have to bring something to the table.' - Devi Dev

  Q. How do you build confidence even as a teenager?

'Confidence comes from knowing your flaws & embracing them.' - Mariah Houghton

'Treat confidence as a muscle. Keep doing it, practice it & always remember, what other people think of you is none of your business.' -Devi Dev

Q. How do you deal with negativity and mean comments online?

'You've got to keep it moving.' - Miss Mykie

 After a full day of character building & workshops all the girls had the opportunity to choose a donated prom dress plus accessories. Needless to say, they went home feeling fabulous and hopefully, empowered.
