BOOK NICOLE FOR YOUR SCHOOL OR EVENT! Send your request and please include: ideal date(s), location and audience info. ~note: Nicole gave birth to her 1st child (daughter) Nov 2013 so workshops can be scheduled for spring 2014 in the southern California area and anytime after Sept 2014 for everywhere else.
Nicole offers several workshops on body image, self-esteem and media literacy. She has spoken to over 60,000 students across North America. She provides a projector/laptop for her workshops. Booking location must provide screen and microphone. Nicole provides activities/art projects for teachers to use post-workshop with students. Nicole encourages girls to be trail blazers instead of being mindless sheep controlled by media.
There are a variety of ways to host a workshop in your school or community.
1. One is to cover the costs through your school/org. (speaking fee & travel costs)
2. Another is to share the costs with other schools (organizations) that also wish to have me speak. This method seems to be popular. (I can do up to 2 workshops a day.) I have workshops for parents, educators and mother/daughter as well.
3. A third method is to find a sponsor through the PTA, or in the community, such as Kiwanis Club, Knight’s of Columbus, a bank or business that helps youth in your community.
“Thank you Nicole for speaking to our school. It helped me through my own troubles of comparing myself to the models in ads!” – Morgan Lyndsey MacKay May 2012
“You are the most inspiring person i have ever met! Nicole has completely changed my life forever. Nicole you have no idea how much that meant to me. I want to help young teens too. Nicole she is amazing. we need a change in media perspective. i cant thank you enough Nicole. media watch out here we come!” – Paige Creasor, 12 yrs old May 2012
“You came to my school before Christmas. And I am very grateful that you came. I have an eating disorder and had not really noticed until you came and spoke at my school. I had kept my feelings to myself pretending that my new diet wasn’t a bad thing. When you came and talked about how girls try and change to look like people in magazines and on tv, I recognized myself in that group of people. Eventually my friend got me to tell people and I’m currently working on getting rid of the disorder. I am so happy that you came to my school it has helped me so so much!” Thank you again, Evelyn! Grade 8
