Meet Rowena. A teacher since 2011 at Kempsey High School and also fitness enthusiast, Rowena noticed a void in programs in her community that girls could call uniquely their own. Passionate about creating a space for these girls, Rowena decided to start up Strong Girl Fitness: an inclusive program specifically for girls. This program includes training such as running, gymnastics and calisthenics through to weightlifting and power lifting. There is also a strong focus on positive body image, building community and creating a healthy lifestyle. Rowena set the motto as Strength, Courage, Choices, because if girls have strength then they will have the courage to make good choices. Throughout this program the students who have attended have gained confidence, health, increased school attendance and have gone on to achieve sporting and academic accomplishments. Since starting the program three years ago, Rowena has encouraged and empowered dozens of girls and in 2015 won Australian Women's Weekly, Woman of the Future award. She is a Strong Woman.
