Her informative, engaging and eye-opening presentation was better than I could have ever expected…Students have been talking about Melinda’s presentation every day since her visit to our school. Highly recommended - 10/10!!” - Julia Picone, Head Teacher Wellbeing, George’s River College, Peakhurst, NSW

“Thank you so much for your talk with us today. It is so important to acknowledge the injustices that riddle society - especially the normalised dehumanisation and sexualisation of women. It has been extremely comforting knowing that people like you are working behind the scenes to help protect women. It was a privilege for us to listen to you today - Ivy, 17, Good Samaritan Catholic College, NSW
