Fabulous Females Fighting for Drug Awareness
15 Northampton girls in the SHINE program wanted their voices to be heard within their small Mid West community.
The group participated in workshops with ABC Journalist Samille Mitchell, learning how to record and edit stories from their families which were shared with their community at an end of year celebration.
“This project has been shown to the public and has brought most to tears with how powerful it is. The girls came together as a family while producing this film. They talked about issues they had never spoken about and we all supported each other with finding ways to make their lives happier and most importantly safer when living at home.”
