1. Speak Up in Class
Raise your hand, even when you’re not sure about the answer. Speaking up isn’t about having the perfect answer. It gives you the experience of thinking on your feet, debating, and wrestling ideas – all crucial skills that you’ll use in every area of your life.

2. Stop Apologising Before You Speak
Girls often introduce opinions with apologies (“I’m not sure if this is right, but...”). Pay attention to the little ways you might be making yourself smaller when you speak up in class, like playing with your hair, saying you “kind of” think something, asking if what you just said “makes sense,” or speaking so softly that no one can hear you.

3. Challenge Yourself
Playing it safe means you’ll never have the exhilaration of overcoming an obstacle and proving that you’re brave enough to try. Push yourself beyond your comfort zone.

4. Ask for Help
The most successful people don’t make it on their own. Instead, they find advisors along the way: experienced, wiser people who know a lot and help them. Don’t be afraid to ask teachers, coaches, or other adults you admire to talk with you about what you’re passionate about.

5. Speak Up in Friendship
We’ve probably all gossiped at one point or another, but if you always talk about your friends instead of to them, you miss the chance to practice speaking up to the people who matter most. Being able to tell someone how you feel will help you in every area of your life. Being direct is scary, but do it with care and you’ll earn the respect and trust of those around you.
