The Mama Bear
The Mama Bears are the nurturers. Others feel comfortable in their presence and go to them to feel heard. They may be referred to as ‘Aunty’ by their friends and family.
Your kind, nurturing soul will be perfect for smaller group work as you’ll make your students feel safe to share openly and dive a little deeper. You might like to run sisterhood evenings where girls come regularly to sit in circle and explore different themes together and you would probably also love working one-on-one with students in a coaching, mentoring or counselling capacity. That mama bear energy may even see you opening up a permanent space where girls are welcome anytime to come and feel at home.
