Rosie Thomas OAM - Deciding not to walk past bullying by creating Project Rockit with her sister: Uniting young people against all kinds of bullying
Manage episode 318817033 series 3309365
“I've been so privileged to have role modelled to me is that introversion and kindness and sensitivity as great strengths in the world, not weakness. I've had the benefit of growing up in a household, encouraged to be more of who we really are, as opposed to fit in to the mould."
Take flight into Rosie's journey - We can all probably relate to experiences growing up, whether directly or indirectly of bullying and acts that are unfair. Rosie and her sister Lucy saw this and decided not to just walk past it but actually tackle it.
Hear about Rosie’s upbringing in the suburbs of Melbourne, being influenced by her family and being close with her old sister. We talk about how Rosie choose to not go to uni after high school and instead start this social enterprise called Project Rockit, back in 2006 when a movement led by young people was not often seen. Rosie talks about the expression of this journey often feeling like building a plane while flying it at the same time.
Rosie’s mantra in life (inspired by the Dalai Lama) - "It’s not enough to be compassionate, you must act."
