Healthy Confidence and Self Belief

Upon completion of SHINE Module 7, we expect that our students:

  • Feel more empowered to face life with courage, no matter what circumstances come our way; having the courage to walk through the door of opportunity when it presents itself
  • Understand the difference between humility and arrogance
  • Can convey the body language of someone who believes in themselves (aka. Self-confidence, self-assuredness, humility with a sprinkle of spunk)
  • Understand that anxiety is a normal and necessary human emotion that helps us avoid dangerous situations or heightens our ability to face them. Occasionally, anxiety can reach a level which interferes with an individual’s ability to function effectively and so reduces their quality of life
  • Are aware that shyness is a coping mechanism that has been developed to protect them
  • Have learnt to be kind to self, armed with the knowledge that 30% - 50% of us are born sensitive
  • Have become aware of the bodily sensations involved in anxiety and have developed skills to deal with these sensations and act courageously despite them
  • Have role-played myriad social situations that previously caused anxiety but feel confident to go forth and experience them in the future having learnt multiple coping strategies (a process of de-sensitisation)
  • This module gently challenges girls to push their boundaries; opening up their range of social situations in which they feel confident to engage with others and enjoy the occasion.
